Dum Dum Girls - Bedroom Eyes
Bedroom Eyes, the second single from Dum Dum Girls’ second album doesn’t catch my attention in any way. It sounds like it could be used over a makeover montage in The Sleepover Club…and not in a good way. Dee Dee’s wavering vocals add a little bit of charm to the easy listening, easy going pop song. However, people hoping for something new and exciting will be left with a bitter taste that’s reminiscent of hipster girl band, The Plastiscines, in their mouth.
Being a Dum Dum Girls virgin (apart from repeating Jail La La throughout summer last year), the trippy kaleidoscopic video showcasing the Girls’ ultra-cool striped tights, clashing lipsticks and leather jackets look appeals to me more than the actual song.
