Death Valley Girls have just released new single, Breakthrough, which admittedly is a cover of a track by Atomic Rooster. With that and a recent EP out The Fountain wanted to catch up with the band to discuss this and their forthcoming plans for the year.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Breakthrough?
DVG: It’s been great! It’s been a while since we’ve released anything so it was exciting to have some new music out there and Suicide Squeeze released a limited edition single for it on vinyl, which was extra cool!
TF: How would you sum it up in one sentence?
DVG: Ultra dimensional, dreamlike, and yet totally earthy!
TF: Such a great track, where did you get your influences from for this one?
DVG: Breakthrough is a cover song, the British band Atomic Rooster initially did it in the early ’70s, but the first version we heard was by The Funkees on a compilation of ’70s Nigerian psych music which we were listening to on tour, we loved both versions of the song and the message behind it!
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release, can we look forward to a new LP?
DVG: Yes! A new album will be out by the end of the year, videos for new songs are being worked on right now, stay tuned!
