Dum Dum Girls, Ex Cops

When: Fri., Oct. 17, 8 p.m. 2014

Originally the solo project of frontwoman Dee Dee and now a five-piece, New York band Dum Dum Girls started out with a guitar-heavy garage-pop sound. For their latest, Too True, released in January, Dum Dum Girls kept the guitar but jumped into the cool, dark pool of atmospheric '80s-esque pop a la Siouxsie & the Banshees and The Cure. Too True marks more than just changes in Dum Dum Girls' sound itself, though. Dee Dee chronicled the death of her mother in 2011's Only in Dreams, but after the release of EP End of Daze the following year, she was able "to start with a fresh slate," she said in an interview with Under the Radar magazine. As a result of that new creative freedom, Too True is full of songs such as "Lost Boys and Girls Club" and "Rimbaud Eyes" that are as dreamy as they are emotionally compelling. Ex Cops will start things off. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
