Indie pop darlings Dum Dum Girls possess the kind of effortless cool usually associated with New York's Downtown scene, but the LA-bred foursome's dreamy sound owes as much to shoegaze as it does to classic NYC punk bands like the Ramones. Taking the stage in their signature black mini-dresses and fishnet stockings, the girls deliver attitude-heavy songs like "Bhang Bhang, I'm a Burnout" and "Wrong Feels Right" with a bewitching blend of passion and insouciance, eyeing fans from behind dark sunglasses as they casually converse between songs. Whether they're vibing out to originals or treating fans to their buzzworthy cover of the Smiths' "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out", Dum Dum Girls always dazzle on their unforgettable tours.
Dum Dum Girls began in Los Angeles in 2008 as the bedroom recording project of the band's lead singer and songwriter Dee Dee Penny. Her early releases caught the eye of iconic indie imprint Sub Pop, and in 2010 the label released Dum Dum Girls' debut full-length I Will Be. After assembling a band around the project, Penny and her new mates hit the road for extensive touring that included a stint opening for the band Girls. Two critically acclaimed EPs and a sophomore album followed shortly after, earning the band Best New Music nods from Pitchfork and several high-profile festival appearances. In 2014 Dum Dum Girls released their highly anticipated third album Too True, hitting the road for another series of electrifying shows in support of the record.
