In 2014, Dum Dum Girls releasedÂ the smooth synth-ladenÂ Too True and Merchandise released the seductive crooner After The End. Â Now, the 4AD boys have made the pilgrimage over to Sub Pop and the Dum Dums for a quick 7″. Â After an immediate and powerful first listen, I’mÂ hoping it isn’t the last time these two indie juggernauts dance.
Both groups share an interest in the back alleys of the 1980s, so it’s only natural that Red Sun oozes nightclub neon and the tremors of 2:00 AM in the crawling bloodshot city streets. Â It could even pass for an unreleased collaboration between Reznor and BowieÂ withÂ that sexy, sinister bass synth pulsating along that minimal backbeat like aÂ strung-outÂ Iggy Pop in Berlin. Â It’s dangerous, but inviting…it’s the soundtrack to your next one-night stand orÂ cold-bloodedÂ murder. Â Your choice.
The ‘Loser Edition’ colorway for Sub Pop’s newest physical artifact is on purple wax,Â and those are officially up for preorder after the ‘buy’ link.
Limited edition Clear Purple vinyl available while supplies last.
