Here’s the new slow and sultry single from all-female Californian dream pop group Dum Dum Girls. The song is the first single from their highly anticipated sophomore album Only in Dreams, set to be released by Sub Pop this September. This song evokes immediate emotion for me due to its resemblance to “Fade Into Me” by Mazzy Star, a song that has been close to my heart for more than a decade. The Dum Dum girls have managed to gracefully capture the sentiments of that great track through the use of reverb-laden guitars and the sad and sultry lyrical stylings of vocalist-songwriter Dee Dee. The album is described by the band as “much darker” than their debut and based on this track, they’re not wrong. Grab your free download here.
Sigh. It’s breathtaking and heartbreaking and I am in love with it.
