Indie-rock trio Derde Verde crafts colorful, chameleon-like song structures sprinkled with noise, analog electronics, melodic guitar lines and rhythmic twists. The L.A. based band named themselves after Val Verde, a rural valley town of coyotes, rolling hills, and big sky, an hour north of the city.
With a range of influences from shoegaze, to krautrock, to indie electronica, the band’s music has been described as “instantly engrossing, buoyed by excellent arrangements and impressive vocal harmonies… Derde Verde may be the closest thing Los Angeles has to its own Radiohead right now” — Tom Child (LA Record).
Derde Verde has toured the West Coast, and played festival dates in Europe. Their compelling and spontaneous live shows earned them slots in 2012 opening for iconic krautrock pioneers Faust, P-Funk/Talking Heads keyboardist Bernie Worrell and San Pedro punk legend Mike Watt.
“The spirits of bands like Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo and Spoon are all at work here, but not always in the way you’d expect. It’s nice to see a group putting some independence back into indie rock.” — Chris Ziegler (LA WEEKLY)
