Biography

Write about what you know. That's what they say. But that's a lot easier said than done when what you know is very, very difficult to bear. That was the challenge Dum Dum Girls' leader Dee Dee faced when writing the songs for the band's moving second album Only in Dreams. "The first record was basically the first songs I'd ever written," says Dee Dee, "and I ... Read more in Amazon's Dum Dum Girls Store

I preface this review by admitting that there is nothing earth-shattering contained on this Ep. It isn't going to change your life and it won't lead to you re-evaluating the boundaries of modern music. It is no Radioheadesque foray into the outer reaches of music's upper stratosphere.

Yet, it is still a sublime piece of meticulously crafted indie pop that demands repeat listens and remains as moreish as plate full of jaffa cakes. Dee Dee (a moniker that can only have derived from a childhood fascination with the mighty Ramones) as lead architect and vocalist brings real charisma to her role as indie starlet but without coming across as unduly stylised or vacuous. The first track, Wrong Feels Right, is breathlessly energetic and catchy but it is on second track, He Gets Me High, that the Dum Dum Girls really hit their stride. Sprawling, fuzzed up guitar alongside cherry blossom vocals help propel that song into classic new wave territory. It is a deliberately energising experience that lives long in the memory. The real surprise though is the slick and accomplished cover of the Smith's classic 'There is a Light That Never Goes Out'. It is a brilliant take on one of the great indie anthems and perhaps gives something for poor Dee Dee to aspire to in terms of lyrical genius (an area that still requires work here).

Nonetheless, to this jaded music listener, this was a refreshingly straightforward and enjoyable aural experience. More of the same please!

Great Band and even better live. Seen them 3 times now and getting tighter each time. Deserves repeated listening as definitely a grower.

I don't know much about these Dum Dum Girls though I suspect they're now a one-woman band. Anyway, we get 4 tracks on this EP and - yes - one is a cover of a song by The Smiths. And a quite good cover at that. But it can't be said I am an authority on the subject as I must confess I don't like The Smiths. Well, let's say the sound for this cover is a nice mix of The Smiths' pop rock at its most jaunty and US indie pop rock. Elsewhere, we get more US indie pop rock (side one) and a cross between goth rock and Phil Spector (the first track on side 2). I suspect that with this record The Dum Dum Girls sound more professional and generic and lose some of their amateur appeal. At the end of the day, there ain't anything here to keep you awake at night but also nothing to be ashamed to have in your record collection.
