Dum Dum Girls, Merchandise Team Up For Sub Pop Single, “Red Sun” b/w “Echo”

Merchandise has cut a new Sub Pop single featuring Dum Dum Girls. The November 27th release is available in a limited purple vinyl pressing here and described as two one-off tracks “written after midnight” and recorded in Berlin, Tampa and New York City last summer.

According to a press release, “‘Red Sun’ is the story of love, power, and weakness. A three-minute narrative about the mystery of human attraction and its hold on the psyche. ‘Red Sun,’ played by Dee Dee, is half siren and half desert wanderer. She’s the temptress and the God of War, the body of a girl who can make all men her victim. ‘Echo’ takes place in the streets of Berlin. In ‘Echo’ our narrator is lost in the madness of regret and lost love. In the warm streets of summer he’s frozen by his thoughts as if it were winter already.”
