In the past I’ve only really checked out the Dum Dum Girls tunes because a) they covered the Smiths b) they dressed kinda cool, and c) they’re a band of cute girls. Yep, I can be like that.

But now they’ve got an album on the way and the first track is rather impressive! So it looks like I’m going to have to quit being a patronizing jerk and enjoy what the Dum Dum Girls were all about in the first place.

‘Coming Down’ is a reverb laden ballad, performed at a trudging pace. The track feels like its got a body on its back, endlessly climbing uphill. Only the slow grind is really effective. You can download this track for free from www.wearethedumdumgirls.com, the album ‘Only In Dreams’ will be out this September on Sub Pop.
