Dum Dum Girls are releasing a new EP, End of Daze, this fall. The group’s last album, Only in Dreams, cleaned up their lo-fi garage rock, and “Lord Knows,” the first single from End of Daze, pushes the transformation even further.
“Lord Knows” is vastly different than early singles like “Jail La La” or “Bhang Bhang, I’m a Burnout.” Lead singer Dee Dee sounds like Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval or Beach House‘s Victoria Legrand on the slowed-down and dreamy track. While she used to rely on energy and speed to bolster her simple garage-pop songs, as her songs get more complex, the slower tempos work beautifully.
End of Daze is out September 25 via Sub Pop.
