The new musical endeavor from Kristin Welchez, (aka Dee Dee, leader of internationally acclaimed rock outfit Dum Dum Girls) is here and it’s called KRISTIN KONTROL. 

A mesmeric 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 most impressive vocal delivery and widest range of songs to date. 

But why the change – you ask? “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 just want to be real about it. Let ‘Dee Dee’ go back to being my mom, my middle name, and the patron saint of many fun years. 

So yeah, I’m Kristin … and this is Kristin Kontrol.”
