CRITIC REVIEWS

90
No Ripcord

Dum Dum Girls have graduated from a class of reverb junkies to becoming potentially one of the most potent and distinct pop bands of our time.

83
Pitchfork

Much more than a stop-gap between LPs, it's succinct but irrefutable proof that this band's dynamite has a long fuse.

80
The 405

This is possibly Dum Dum Girls' best release to date, and will be a definite presence on my autumn playlist.

80
Paste

The End of Daze EP cements Dum Dum Girls as a band that should be taken seriously and whose look has become the least interesting part about them.

80
Beats Per Minute

They may be lumped in with the recent girl group pop fad, but End of Daze proves that there is nothing common or ordinary about this band.

70
Consequence of Sound

Although distant from the translucent bedroom recordings of debut I Will Be, the 18-minute EP marks a pivotal moment for Dum Dum Girls, extending far beyond the initial lo-fi confessions of Dee Dee Penny. 

60
NME

This is instead a solid collection of outtakes, rather than a full display of their songwriting muscle. 

50
Tiny Mix Tapes

While End of Daze features some of Dum Dum Girls’ more sophisticated songwriting to date, there is an overwhelming shadow of certainty and safety that is cast over the EP, preventing it from being a truly singular musical experience.

I am way late, but damn... I can't stop listening to this. Surprised the scores were so lukewarm.
