hmv's Next Big Thing... #69 Kristin Kontrol

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you icy cool synthstress Kristin Kontrol...

 

Who Is She?

You'll know Krsitin Welchez better as Dee Dee, singer in fuzzed up pop rockers Dum Dum Girls. For this new project she's Kristin Kontrol, a synth-pop femme fatale. 

 

Who Does She Sound Like?

Kontrol's sound is a mixture of classic 80s pop like the Cocteau Twins and vintage Pet Shop Boys with more modern synth queens like Robyn and Lykke Li

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

Heavy beats, synths that breath icy cool with every note and Welchez's incredible for a hook, it's a deadly combination. 

 

Can I Hear Something?

Of course. Her new single 'X-Communicate' is below for you and available to purchase here in our digital store.
