Dum Dum Girls | Coming Down (Video)

March 28, 2012 at 4:47 pm Leave a comment

“Coming Down” is my favorite track off the Dum Dum Girls’ 2011 sophomore release, “Only In Dreams”, out via Sub Pop. Dee Dee said she wrote the song after her mother’s death. And you can feel the emotion of it all, with its wave of sonic-guitar and open-hearted lyrical honesty. The opening verses set the tempo and mood with their passionate all-or-nothing take: “I take as much as I can get / I don’t have any regret / I close my eyes to conjure up something / But it’s just a faint taste in my mouth / I think I’m coming down.” The video was directed by new Dum Dum Girls bassist, Malia James, and appears to be an homage to Yoko Ono’s performance art piece “Cut Piece”, which you can view in part here. The “Coming Down” video adds a pretty layer of languidness, with Dee Dee’s mouth moving just slightly slower than the pace of the already drawn-out vocals. It’s a wonderful video. — David D. Robbins Jr.
