Deap Vally are a Rock duo consisting of guitarist and vocalist Lindsey Troy and drummer Julie Edwards. The pair first met at a needlework class in Silver Lake, California, where Edwards taught Troy how to crochet and they bonded over their love of the Blues. In August 2012 the band signed to Island Records and this was their first single with the label. It was debuted as Zane Lowe's Hottest Record In The World on BBC Radio 1, October 3, 2012.
Drummer Julie Edwards told NME regarding the song: "We just really wanted to say something positive. We're total peaceniks. We think everybody should chill out and get together."
Troy told Coup de Main magazine about the album title. "It is a conjunction of two words: the word 'sisters' and the word 'histrionics,'" she explained. "That was a really genius idea Julie came up with when we first started as a band for the name of our first release."
Two tears roll down Sinead O'Connor's face. toward the end of the video for "Nothing Compares 2 U." They were shed because she associated the song's lyrics of love and loss with her mother, who was killed in a car accident in 1985.
"Come Dancing" by The Kinks was inspired by the older sister of Ray Davies, who would make guys take her out dancing and spend their money on her, only to send them home frustrated with just a peck on the cheek.
