Dum Dum Girls - "Coming Down"

The Dum Dum Girls have been churning out stellar garage pop fuzz for a few years now, but the group's music has never quite hit me or held my attention like the brand-spanking new "Coming Down." A slow-burner of the highest order, "Coming Down" sways into a groove of giant snaps of bass and snare drum, rippling tremolo guitar, and a wall of reverb that lead singer Dee Dee Penny beautifully weaves through in perhaps her strongest vocal performance to date. Part Hope Sandoval in her Mazzy Star days and part late 70s Chrissie Hynde, Dee Dee digs deep here and delivers a truly masterful and nuanced performance. "Coming Down" is serious middle school dance-quality make-out material: epic.

The Dum Dum Girls' forthcoming LP Only In Dreams is out September 27th on Sub Pop.
