Dum Dum Girls: “Bedroom Eyes” (playing Empty Bottle this Friday)

Dum Dum Girls just released their latest Sub Pop LP, Only In Dreams this September. Like many of their contemporaries, they play a sort of Phil Spector-ish Girl Group brand of DIY Punk/80s post punk. 

The first single and video off the album is the dreamy, “Bedroom Eyes.” It’s a girl group tune with Smiths undertones. Though Dee Dee sounds like Elvis’s female counterpart as she sings words like “undulates” and the harmonies are beautifully visualized through a kaleidoscope, it’s the super fuzzy, old-school solo that really floors me. If Dum Dum Girls can break out with Only In Dreams,  I think they’ll do for leggings, mascera, and lipstick what the Beatles did for Chelsea Boots and mop tops.

Dum Dum Girls will be playing at Empty Bottle this Friday (10/14) with Crocodiles
