What People Are Saying About Dum Dum Girls Too True:
 
“.. This album is the perfect-pop balance of cliché and rawness, with mythic ambition and songs that make you a three-minute hero.”  - MOJO
 
“Too True is a bold album, with Dee Dee backed by huge swelling guitars on a series of resoundingly anthemic and unashamedly 80s sounding tracks.” - Uncut
 
“Dee Dee’s bold new vision has come sharply into focus” The Fly
 
“smarter, sassier and more coherent and it feels like Penny has finally found her true sound.” Loud & Quiet 
 
“an intimate and brilliantly expansive LP of new wave-inflected bedroom pop” Time Out
 
"Dee Dee ‘ chases pop into the dark’ and emerges triumphant, to gift us another clutch of majestic, poetic eloquent heroic and inspiring pop songs.” Von PIp
 
“Too True is a record made with the intent of defining, and at the very least soundtracking moments in our lives, pivotal or not.  Every song bursts with an underlying urgency to be heard.” Planet Notion 
 
'Too True' …. flowers into a technicolour wonder.” SoundsXP
 
"Dum Dum Girls are more than just another “indie” band. The new year has kick-started with ten tracks which reveal the leading ladies increasing talent, ambition and spirit.” The Girls Are
 
"Dum Dum Girls continue to explore a sonic and formal intersection of the early 1960s — girl groups, surf-rock, garage-rock — and the post-punk 1980s of the Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine. A few chords, a clear melody and succinct verse-chorus-bridge structures are filled with darkly allusive lyrics and floated amid gauzy, sweeping guitar effects. It’s a roomy concept, encompassing spaghetti western guitar touches in “Cult of Love,” new wave momentum in “Little Minx,” stately folk-rock in “Under These Hands,” a weighty undertow in “Lost Boys and Girls Club” and a celestial serenity in “Trouble Is My Name.” - [Critics Choice]  New York Times

“Penny's songs are no less quotable for their simplicity, whether she's name-checking 19th-century poet Arthur Rimbaud ("Rimbaud Eyes"), fitting the album's title into the chorus of "Too True to Be Good" or dispensing a perfect goth-pop mission statement in "Evil Blooms": "Why be good? Be beautiful and sad." On Too True, Penny and Dum Dum Girls need barely 30 minutes to prove that a band can be all three at once.” [First Listen] - NPR Music
 
“Songs like "Rimbaud Eyes" and "Evil Blooms" more than live up to their fashion-goth titles. But Penny is best opening up her sound on big, searching ballads like "Lost Boys and Girls Club," where sad Madonna hangs with the Jesus and Mary Chain, or the Chrissie Hynde-worthy weeper "Are You Okay?" where Penny wanders in a "lavender haze" ("I'm reckless at night/I'm sorry for days"), wearing boozy misery like a black-leather security blanket.” [3.5/5 Stars] - Rolling Stone
