Listen: Dum Dum Girls — “Lord Knows”Posted by Timothy Grisham
Dum Dum Girls have released a preview off their forthcoming Sub Pop EP End of Daze.
The EP, which also features a cover of Strawberry Switchblade‘s “Trees and Flowers”, comes out Sept. 25.
The simplistic ballad “Lord Knows” sounds remarkably similar to the Rowland S. Howard penned song “Shivers” which was made famous by the pre-Birthday Party group Boys Next Door (although originally recorded by the Young Charlatans).
This is not the first Dum Dum Girls/Boys Next Door coincidence… Dee Dee included “Shivers” on her Rough Trade released mixtape Get Lost.
“Lord Knows” is available for download via Sub Pop. Be sure to check out the Dum Dum Girls tour dates below, as well as a video for the Boys Next Door song “shivers”.
