Dum Dum Girls – End of Daze EP (2012) – Review

Review: Coming off the good sophomore album, Only In Dreams (Coming Down was one of my favorite songs of 2011), the Dum Dum Girls quartet is back with a new EP End of Daze. It features three songs originally done for Only In Dreams (to be used as B-sides) and two new songs.

The EP has a very atmospheric sound, having an ethereal feeling but still mixed with the band’s darker tone. It has a much more dream-pop quality to it than their more indie/garage rock sounding output. However, they are working again with producers Sune Rose Wagner and Richard Gottehrer (who they have great chemistry with), and thus will be familiar to returning fans.

The Dum Dum Girls seem to strive in short form, as like their last EP (He Gets Me High) End of Daze is their best work to date. 4/5

Essential Tracks:
1)      Lord Knows
2)      Season in Hell
3)      Mine Tonight

Available on Digital Download
