Dum Dum Girls

Biography

Since they emerged at a time when C-86-inspired acts like Vivian Girls and the Pains of Being Pure at Heart were in vogue, it's little wonder that California's Dum Dum Girls — a group whose '60s-inflected lo-fi pop brings to mind acts like Black Tambourine and Dolly Mixture — became something of a sensation on the indie circuit soon after the release of their first single. In 2008, lead singer Kirstin Gundred (aka Dee Dee) began making solo recordings as Dum Dum Girls, deriving the name both from the Vaselines' album Dum-Dum and from the Iggy Pop song “Dum Dum Boys.” Over the course of the next year, Dee Dee released a couple singles (a 7″ single on Hozac, a four-way split single on Art F*g), a 12″ EP (Yours Alone, released via Captured Tracks), and a compilation disc appearance (on Art F*g's Blissed Out cassette comp). Thanks to the high level of buzz surrounding Dee Dee (and, of course, the quality of the records), Sub Pop signed Dum Dum Girls in 2009.
