    Dum Dum Girls have graduated from a class of reverb junkies to becoming potentially one of the most potent and distinct pop bands of our time. End of Daze is on a separate level of artistic creativity and economy.

    Maybe most importantly, the End of Daze EP cements Dum Dum Girls as a band that should be taken seriously and whose look has become the least interesting part about them.
  3. They may be lumped in with the recent girl group pop fad, but End of Daze proves that there is nothing common or ordinary about this band.

    Their continued filtering of '50s girl-group melodies through swelling pop songs that crib equally from the noise/indie/dream spheres captivates in newly charming ways. [Oct 2012, p.88]

    A five-song EP that summarizes the band's strengths better than any of their work so far, while also highlighting how little this material gains from linear sequencing.

    Shying away from lo-fi, Dum Dum Girls still deliver perfectly spare noise rock ("I Got Nothing"), but they're best somewhere in between.

    While End of Daze features some of Dum Dum Girls' more sophisticated songwriting to date, there is an overwhelming shadow of certainty and safety that is cast over the EP, preventing it from being a truly singular musical experience.
