The cliched image of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll is one that is often attached to American rock duo Deap Vally, because they rock out to tunes about dirty old men and taking the "walk of shame", as well as pull off the tough leather and ripped jeans look effortlessly.

But the two musicians - guitarist Lindsey Troy and drummer Julie Edwards - are quick to point out that they are not "wild", even if their music suggests otherwise.

Edwards, 35, says of the common misconception: "We don't party hearty all the time and we're really nice and kind people."

Troy, 28, interjects: "People sometimes assume we are stuck-up b****es because we play rock music, which I don't really understand."
