Garage rock queens Dum Dum Girls have released a video to accompany their single, Rimbaud Eyes, off their latest album, Too True. The tune has Dum Dum Girls combining early ’60s surf rock with ’80s post-punk, resulting in huge sounds, gauzy guitars, deep bass and frontwoman Dee Dee Penny’s irresistibly hazy vocals.
 
Directed by artist and musician Tamaryn, the video features the girls rendered as brightly-colored cartoons performing on what appears to be a heart-shaped stage floating in hyperspace. In other shots, cartoon Penny trots down a neon-lit city street, with pops of color surrounding her. It’s reminiscent of one of those original Apple dancing ads with a Daria-like tough-girl attitude. In other shots, the girls swim, mermaid-like, underwater. Colors drip and pop from the screen, creating a dazzling, distinctly psychedelic vibe from the era that likely inspired this track. Catch the Girls on their worldwide tour, and check out the flashy vid below.
