If you haven't checked out Deap Vally's debut album 'Sistrionix' then you really need to get on it. I'd been hearing about this band last year around festival season; their names kept cropping up alongside the likes of Queens of the Stone Age and Jack White. I looked them up on YouTube and instantly fell in love. If you want raw, straight to the point, bluesy rock then these two women have got it covered. I saw them live last year at the Basement, Rock City, and it was such a fun show - I'll definitely be at their next one. For these gals the music speaks for itself so give them a listen.
I saw The Beaches earlier this year as they opened up for Brody Dalle on her UK tour and they're probably one of the best support acts I've seen. I picked up their EP after the gig and they've since released another one, both of which I love. Despite their young age these girls are seriously good live and write really great, catchy rock songs.
Rouge are a band from London who I discovered on Twitter through being a fan of Deap Vally. I think they messaged me saying I might like their stuff and they were right! They write blues-inspired rock songs with gorgeous vocals and I'm looking forward to hearing more from these guys.
