Dum Dum Girls - "Coming Down" Video

The single biggest departure on Only In Dreams, the Dum Dum Girls’ great 2011 sophomore album, was the slo-mo Mazzy Star-esque ballad “Coming Down.” That song’s brand-new video is a single worshipful black-and-white shot of bandleader Dee Dee, who we see staring down the camera while people come along and cut her clothes off with scissors in an homage to Yoko Ono’s Cut Piece. Malia James directs. Watch it below.

Only In Dreams is out now on Sub Pop.

  1. I like album and song, and the concept for the video is fine. But there seems to be a weird sync issue between the audio and video that ends up making her mouth look kinda strange.

  2. Dee Dee is stunning.

  3. hmmm…I am the guy in the hat who makes the first cut.I can also be identified by my soul patch and by my terrible fear of accidentally cutting Dee Dee with those shanks. Great band, great director, extras, director. Lovely people and a lovely time in Silverlake.

  4. Thanks for one of my favorite bands! :)

  5. Great band and song but they cut parts of the song out for the video, the beginning, a couple of lyric less verses and the guitar solo! The song is too condensed now : (
