Dum Dum Girls Are Anything But!

2 Jun

With its pop-alternative bouncy sound it’s easy to mistake Dum Dum Girls “Heartbeat” as a upbeat tune with an upbeat message.

But you wouldn’t be more wrong.

Like some of the greatest songs in music history dark lyrics are well hidden by a toe tapping melody. “I don’t know where to go to get away from this sorrow” lead singer Dee Dee sadly admits. Her vocals and the content of the song has echoes of 10,000 Maniacs “Like the Weather.” Though “Heartbeat” has a musically more sunny flavor, it still packs enough of a dark punch to match “Like the Weather.”

It’s hard to believe but the 80’s are now considered to be retro and Dum Dum Girls capture the a certain type of spirit of the decade with ease.
