Album Review: Dum Dum Girls - Only In Dreams

Tuesday 25th October, 2011 9:10AM

Only In Dreams, the second album from Kristen Gundred's Dum Dum Girls, is a textbook exercise in sonic consistency and stylistic maturation. Centralised around Gundred's massive, expressive vocal chords and a conversational lyric style, these two key factors are supported by conventional, yet polished garage rock (or even surf rock) rhythm sections, multi-part backing harmonies and richly toned guitar lines Link Wray would be proud of. The result is an accessible, orthodox take on the current wall-of-sound indie pop aesthetic, also associated with the Vivian Girls, Best Coast and Frankie Rose and the Outs.
