Kristin Welchez better known as Dee Dee, leader of the Dum Dum Girls is set to release her debut album under a new pseudonym Kristin Kontrol. Having ditched the title of Dee Dee, she has given her whole sound an overhaul.
Kristin explains the change “For me as leader of Dum Dum Girls it felt very stoic and serious, and I am serious, but anyone who really knows me knows I’m silly, too; I smile a lot.”
With this reincarnation of sorts it sees Kristin explore a more melodious pop sound. The album was produced by Kurt Feldman (Ice Choir and The Pains of Being Pure At Heart), the ten songs on the album have been whittled down from some 62 that were originally written for the project.
X-Communicate will be released on Sub Pop on 27th May 2016, for now though you can check out the title track from X-Communicate below:
