Dum Dum Girls on Jimmy Fallon Show

Dec 2nd, 2011 in Music

Dum Dum Girls made their network television debut last night, showing up on the “Jimmy Fallon Show” to play their song, Bedroom Eyes, off of their #1 College-Radio album, “Only in Dreams” on Sub Pop. Watch the performance below via the Audio Perv. The song truly takes flight at 2:21.  You might assert from this performance that they are merely the Goth Go-Gos.  But we hear more depth in the lyrics to go with the arresting audio amalgam of the Shangri-Las, Ramone(a)s, Cramps, and Mazzy Star.

About the song, Bedroom Eyes, Sub Pop tells that [lead singer] “Dee Dee wrote ‘Bedroom Eyes’ after returning from a European tour, jet-lagged and lonely. ‘I was home alone,’ she says. ‘Insomnia was taking its toll; I felt absolutely crazy. I looked up poetry on the subject and found a Dante Gabriel Rosetti poem and the song was born from that.’” A poetry reader? We’re in.
