Dum Dum Girls Background
The Dum Dum Girls originally started
out as the bedroom recording effort of Dee Dee Penny. But the project quickly evolved to become a massive success on the indie
music scene. Dee Dee's success stemmed from not only her gift of singing but from her innate penchant for songwriting. Drawing
on her own experiences, she was able to pen meaningful and nostalgic lyrics. She said, "The first record was basically the
first songs I'd ever written, and I was thinking nostalgically about being a teenager. This record, it was pretty much impossible
not to write about very recent, very real things." The album Dee Dee references is the Dum Dum Girls' sophomore album, Only
in Dreams, which was released in 2011. Dee Dee certainly had enough real things to write about. Several of her songs touched
on the heartache she experienced after her mother's death while other songs unraveled the emotions felt from being separated
from a loved one. This was something Dee Dee was all too familiar with as her husband, also a musician, was often on the road
as well. "Just about all the songs reflect the fact that I'd been on the road for about a year, pretty much separate from
everything real in my life except the band. A lot of it is about distance and detachment."
In 2012, their End of Daze
EP dropped. Pitchfork gave the EP the "Best New Music" title and also awarded its lead-off track, "Lord Knows," with "Best
New Track." Dee Dee has also lent her talents to a number of collaborations. She issued a self-titled single as The Mayfair
Set, where she pairs up with Mike Sniper of Blank Dogs. She also worked with Tamaryn on the song "Teenage Lust," a song originally
done by The Jesus and Mary Chain.
Too True, their third full-length effort, arrived in early 2014. Dee Dee credited
Madonna, Suede, Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Stone Roses as her inspirations for this album.
