Dum Dum Girls

On one hand you have sweet. Pretty girls, shorts dresses, quirky stockings and mellow voices.  On the other hand you have sour. Loss, suffer, separation, distance, detachment.  There you are, that’s what music is made of.  No wonder it wasn’t until the ‘sour’ hand was full that the Dum Dum Girls made a great leap forward and released what’s for the rest of us both unique and full of emotional impact.

What is so distinctive about Dum Dum girls is their blend of girl gang, garage-pop, eyeliner punk, moody atmospheric music that forms the substance of their signature. It’s their way of letting you in a world of Edie Sedgwicks and Jane Birkins, in a world of days that evolve from polished to lonely to torn.

Spread the word: Woodkid

Director, photographer, singer, musician and already a winner of more than twenty awards since 2008.  French wonderboy Yoann Lemoine has crafted a breathtaking four minute visual feast for his first EP “Iron” and thank God, people have noticed!

Salivating wolves, hypnotic owls (got my full attention now), high contrast, slow motion fight scenes and a post apocalyptic Agyness Deyn.  The end feels like something out of a World War II documentary when all you got is high resolution black and white portraits, running scenes and a CGI battle hint.

Sit back, watch and spread the word!
