Watch: Dum Dum Girls – “Under These Hands”

After using gobs of color for “Too True To Be Good” and, to a much greater degree, “Rimbaud Eyes,” Dum Dum Girls have completely drained the new video of it. The video for “Under These Hands,” part of All Saints’ London Sessions series, is a hip and stylish affair befitting for a clothing store. Glam punk, if that’s […]

Dum Dum Girls Release Colorful, Tamaryn-Directed Video For “Rimbaud Eyes”

Watch Dum Dum Girls Perform “Rimbaud Eyes” on ‘Letterman’

Dum Dum Girls stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman a few nights ago to perform “Rimbaud Eyes” off of their new album. The performance shows they’ve still got it, and probably makes you question why you ever thought they’d lose it. Too True is their first new album in three years. Instead of the lo-fi sound we’re […]

Album Stream: Dum Dum Girls – ‘Too True’

Capability and consistency aren’t the most exciting descriptors, but we attach them to the delightful Dum Dum Girls without meaning anything back-handed. The California quartet has been releasing material regularly since forming in 2009, though their output dipped a bit in 2013, and it never fails to be thoroughly enjoyable. Too True, set to be released […]
