Dum Dum Girls' Dee Dee has launched a new solo project titled Kristin Kontrol.
The singer has signed to Sub Pop to release a new album, said to be informed by synth pop, R&B and Krautrock.
The record will be released this Spring, with Dee Dee / Kristin Kontrol providing fans with a short introductory clip:
"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."
