Video of the Moment #1862: Dum Dum Girls

By on Wednesday, 22nd July 2015 at 6:00 pm

Dum Dum Girls don’t really like to follow the rules. While I shared my thoughts on Twitter yesterday on the questionable nature of Laura Marling‘s current promotional campaign, at least Marling’s series of videos released this year are for her album that came out this year. In the case of Dum Dum Girls, yesterday they released a new promo video for ‘Coming Down’, which appeared on their 2011 album ‘Only in Dreams’. (Their latest album, ‘Too True’, was released in 2014.) Uh, okay. Well, it kind of makes sense from a (shocker!) promotional standpoint, as the song featured in a recent episode of cult tv show Orange is the New Black. So out came an old video they filmed back in the day, and strike while the iron’s hot, eh?

If you enjoy the Girls’ black and white, leather and lace aesthetic, something tells me you’ll enjoy this one. Watch the video for ‘Coming Down’ below.



(SXSW 2014 flavoured!) Video of the Moment #1461: Dum Dum Girls

Dum Dum Girls will be appearing at SXSW 2014 next month, so it’s as good of a time as any to unleash a new promo video on the public so everyone knows what they look like, right? That’s what I thought until I watched ‘To True to Be Good’, which is psychedelic, trippy coloured and with all those flowers, it looks like an advert for H&M, maybe Lana Del Rey got sacked? Just a thought… Watch the video below.

I’m sure you’re wondering just like me when the Dum Dum Girls will get out of their black and white video phase. Keep pondering this as you watch their new video for ‘Lord Knows’ (off their new EP ‘Teen Daze’) below.

Dum Dum Girls pay homage to a Yoko Ono video in their new promo for ‘Coming Down’. Singer Dee Dee’s dress is rapidly clipped to shreds by strangers: well, we all knew Yoko Ono was avant garde and weird, right?



MP3 of the Day #398: Dum Dum Girls

Like girl groups? Then chances are you’re going to love this. ‘Bedroom Eyes’ is the latest from the all-girl California rock band Dum Dum Girls. (Yes, they are named after the Vaselines‘ song.)

Their new album ’Only In Dreams’ is due out on the 27th of September on Sub Pop and Inertia.
