Deap Vally on Their Recent Success: "It Feels Really Busy"
We would love to work with Lars again. It just feels really, really natural. We're not against the idea of experimenting with other people, and I think it could be really fun to do different collaborations. But like I said, working with Lars just felt so natural and he's so easy to work with, so good at what he does, he doesn't have an ego -- which is good because we're both kind of really opinionated -- but there's certain producers that would come in and maybe be like dictators, and we can't work that way.
Considering Deap Vally's humble, crochet class beginnings, how does it feel to have Sistrionix receive such acclaim?
It feels really busy (laughs). We've just been touring nonstop, literally. We're just playing all of the time, and it's definitely really flattering and a huge honor that people have said such nice things about the record, but we don't read reviews anymore. Most of them were great, but there were a few that weren't, and I think it's kind of poisonous to read reviews of your art.
We're really busy, and it's really hard work, but we're having such an adventure, and we're doing what we love. We'll have those moments where we kind of wake up and realize amidst all of the frenzy and the driving around and the luggage and all of that that we're really fortunate!
