Dum Dum Girls - Coming Down

This simply is one of the best ballads i've heard in a long time. Dum Dum Girls new album entitled: Only in Dreams goes on general sale this coming Monday. Two word's i'm waiting with bated breath. This Californian all woman outfit are seriously packing a punch if you are fans of: music that transcends genre. For example on the track Always Looking, it sounds like a classic 1950's rock n roll (with the surf guitar sound effects) but with added distortion and more aggressive drumming. This is pop with added power! 

Yet the song the which is most doing it for me is Coming Down. A stunning tour-de-force musically and emotionally. The lead vocalist has an uncanny resemblance to Wendy Melvoin (one half of Wendy & Lisa), regardless lead singer Dee Dee has a stunning range & her performance could leave you an emotional wreck (but in a good way)

Peace and lots of love x
