To call the End of Daze EP the “Only in Dreams Reject Club” would be unjust as some songs never make it on their intended album. But California’s Dum Dum Girls know how to make amazing EPs (He Gets Me High EP anyone?) and End of Daze is like He Gets Me High’s lo-fi art student little sister.
Despite the beats in “Season in Hell” and “I Got Nothing” this is perhaps the most chill the Dum Dum Girls have ever been. Even its first single “Lord Knows” finds itself between stoner rock and ‘60s drum beats. But all indie expectation for this EP immediately pauses during their cover of Strawberry Switchblade’s “Trees and Flowers” showing Frankie Rose and crew are more than black eyelined boot wearing rock girls.
