Women Of Intention

Album: Sistrionix (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist and vocalist Lindsey Troy has described this as Deap Vally's middle-finger song. Drummer Julie Edwards told NME: "We're not like these savage creatures that somebody found who don't have any thought process. We know what we're doing, we choose what we do."
  • The Sistrionix album was conceived, written and performed by females, and this track was an assault on misogyny and sexism in the music industry. Drummer Julie Edwards explained to NME: "It was a track for people who didn't want us to make that kind of music and wanted to control us. People who saw us as simple natives who didn't have a plan, to whom things happened by accident."
