Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls. Her real name is Kristin and you’d better start getting used to it. Today, she has announced her new music project from Kristin Welchez, (aka Dee Dee, leader Dum Dum Girls) it’s called KRISTIN KONTROL.
“The music is a combination of new wave, R&B, synth pop, and krautrock, it’s a wink to heroes from the past, a nod to contemporaries, and a bold “solo” dive into the future.
It’s a heavily electronic effort that boasts Kristin’s vocal delivery and widest range of songs to date”.
“I wanted to open things up and shed light on significant influences that felt off-limits in Dum Dum land. I don’t want to fight them off anymore. That’d be a drag.”
“The music is so different from anything I’ve ever done — I felt compelled to shed the alter-ego instead of trying to morph Dum Dum Girls into something else. I didn’t want to mess with that legacy.”
KRISTIN KONTROL’s debut album will be released worldwide this spring via Sub Pop.
