DUM DUM GIRLS -ONLY IN DREAMS.
as reviewed by mister esquire

girl group revival/neo-shoegaze alt pop.
a definite move towards an epic pop sound.
the 60's/50's vibe is still there, but this
harkens more towards the 80's (pretenders,
bangles, et al.) mass modern rock interpretation.
the dum dum's distortion is also toned down:
the vocals are clear! the guitars are clear!
(this is total spectorvision=walls of sound.)
i prefer the earlier work, but oh well.
this is not as, oh, how shall i say, not as...
BLADERUNNERCORE as before.
p.s. they're a great live!=slick&tight.
FCC CLEAN.
RIYL: pretenders, mazzy star, best coast, vivian girls, et al.
