Combining elements of noir and the California sunshine to exude a specific Los Angeles vibe, Dum Dum Girls were recently in town to play a gig at the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis. They stopped in to The Current's studio to talk to Steve Seel and to play a few songs, including a couple off their most recent album, Too True.
Between songs, Seel asks Dum Dum Girls about their recent short-film project, "Are You Okay?", which was written by Bret Easton Ellis, whose previous credits include American Psycho and Less Than Zero. The short film is embedded below.
Beyond the film project, Dee Dee talks about her influences and how she came to work with legendary producer Richard Gottehrer. Jules also tells Steve about her Airline guitar (pictured below), saying, "I love old '60s guitars that look like they were developed for sci-fi films."
Listen to the complete audio to hear the entire interview and music.
"Are You Okay?"

The first two tracks are off the Dum Dum Girls' 2014 release, Too True, while "Coming Down" is off the 2011 full-length, Only in Dreams; both albums are on the Sub Pop label.
