Dum Dum Girls - Coming Down


Dum Dum Girls have offered up the first track off their upcoming Sub Pop release, 'Only In Dreams' (due for release September 27th), "Coming Down" is a real step up in class too, a slow-burning opus that clocks in at six and a half minutes that's a world apart from the stellar garage-rock that marked their debut 'I Will Be' and I for one, completely love it. Signs were good from after their EP 'He Gets Me High' and boy have the girls delivered on this teaser track.

"Coming Down" is a real heart on sleeve lament. Dee Dee's smoky vocals recall more Hope Sandoval than the lo-fi fuzzed-out Shangri-La's of the debut. Languid, echoey guitars shimmer with emotion and longing, complementing the woozy and wistful lyrics perfectly, everything about this track is mellow, luscious, amazing.

"Coming Down" is for those late night, alcohol soaked melancholic moments. Undeniably vulnerable and beautiful, if the album hits me like this track then it's going to be something special.

Dum Dum Girls are on tour throughout October and November, hitting London's ULU, 17th November.
