Today’s song of the day “Coming Down” comes from Dum Dum Girls’ new album released this last September. They are an Indie Pop band from Los Angeles, California. Dum Dum Girls was originally a solo project in 2008, but when she was signed to Sub Pop in 2009 three members were added to the band. The name comes from a discussion between lead singer-songwriter Kristen Gundred and her husband. They were looking through some records at home and came across The Vaselines’ album titled Dum Dum, which then led to talk of “Dum Dum Boys” by Iggy Pop. The rest is not too distant history.
YouTube Preview Image “Coming Down” was written during the last week of her mother’s passing from cancer in 2010. It has to do with being very upset and being forced to realize her situation.
