Published Jul 09, 2009It seems the era of blog hype will refuse to die, as buzz bands continue to get scooped up by the biggest of indie labels. The latest of the batch are Brooklyn's Dum Dum Girls, who have officially inked a deal with Sub Pop.
If you haven't heard them, you could could say the lo-fi, female-fronted indie pop/punk group share a similar sound with Vivian Girls. In fact, they also share a member, with former Vivian drummer Frankie Rose now beating the skins for the Dum Dums.
As far as the Dum Dum Girls' Sub Pop debut is concerned , the album is slated for an early 2010 release. The band have already released a batch of sold-out EPs on hip labels like HoZac, Captured Tracks and Zoo Music.
