It's been two years since Dum Dum Girls released an album and in their Too True
return, they seem to have remained true to their jangly cult vibe. Their previous albums, I Will Be, He Gets Me High, Only in Dreams
and End of Days
progressively catapulted the girls onto larger stages to play in front growing audiences who craved their infectiously carefree girl-rock tones. At first Too True
rings in memories of laying in your room singing along to End of Days
. Dee Dee Penny's voice is recognizable from the first note of "Cult of Love". But also lingering in the opener is a shift in mood. Sure the lyrics in their songs have always been tracing darkness, but the melodies in their new album project a sense of uncertainty that the previous dream pop jams had lacked.
