I’m personally very excited for the announcement of the new Dum Dum Girls single and album, Too True, out January 28 on SubPop Records. For those of you who might not be familiar, the New York quartet rose to fame in 2010 with the release of their debut I Will Be, a promising fuzz-pop collection that led a pack of similarly retro-leaning female rock groups. 2011’s Only In Dreams, in which lead singer-lyricist Dee Dee explored the range of emotions she experienced when her mother died, solidified the Girls’ place in the indie-rock pantheon.

Check out the video for the amazing new single “Lost Boys and Girls Club” above; the slow-burning track rattles and menaces like a sexed-up, gothy Pat Benatar, and the video, released shortly after Halloween (as timing would have it) is like a ’90s-theme haunted-house rave at the crypt-keeper’s house. Looks like trouble.
