Kristin Kontrol Get’s X-Communicated
Kristin Welchez has already established a musical career for herself with her popular indie -Dream Pop band Dum Dum Girls. However, sometimes being in an established Band/Sound can become restrictive in many ways artistically and that’s when you find artists branching out with solo projects in an effort to exercise their creative demons.
Such is the case with Welchez and her new effort Kristin Kontrol, which she says is the next step in her creative evolution. Makes sense, in her debut Lp under her new moniker titled “X-Communicate” there are similarities to Dum Dum Girls here and there and similar trappings but it’s far more Synth Heavy and Kristin comes off much more confident and ready to tame the dancefloor.
She seems re-energized and her LP is an enjoyable listen, which was produced by Ice Choir’s Kurt Feldman and Andrew Miller.
