Dum Dum Girls Premiere”Rimbaud Eyes” Video

Dum Dum Girls: "Rimbaud Eyes" Video Premiere + European Tour Dates May 1st-June 7th. Dum Dum Girls play their next show is May 01in London, UK at Scala

The Dum Dum Girls have released a new video for “Rimbaud Eyes,” from the band’s  new album, Too True, out now worldwide on Sub Pop. The new visual stars the band, was directed by Tamaryn, features cinematography from Bianca Alexis, and animated and edited by Gooby Herms. The guitar four-piece appear as if in Jem and The Holograms, with frontwoman Dee Dee Penny a pastel faerie queen Pat Benetar who knows she has better hair than everyone else at the (peep) show. She struts down a sex shop hyperway, appears in Octopussy-ish 007 sillhouettes before – oh! – climaxing with her band in hyperspace on a heart-shaped platform (see premiere April 24th).”

Dum Dum Girls’ worldwide tour in support of Too True is underway, with the European trek set to run from May 1st in London, UK at Scala and ending June 7th in Porto, PT at Primavera Sound Festival.
