DUM DUM GIRLS / Only In Dreams [2011]

Sounding like Chrissie Hynde possessed by the heartbroken spirit of The Leader Of The Pack, the Dum Dum Girls seem like they're having a great ol' time on their second full-length Only In Dreams.
It's filled with head-bopping pop songs arranged and produced like classic songs of the '60's about heartbreak and crying into your pillow. Complimented with emotionally powerful vocals that are immediately likable and a tight rhythm section, the Dum Dum Girls couldn't be anymore fun than this.
This is girly rock pop filled with melodic hooks at some of it's best in many, many years. Keep an eye on these girls, I think they've got a bright future.

4 Shangri-Las out of 5

Songs Of Note: Bedroom Eyes; Heartbeat (Take It Away)
