Kristin Kontrol, a new project from Kristen Welchez (formally Dee Dee Penny of Dum Dum Girls) has released her latest track ‘Show Me’.
With a hint of the Cure meets synth-pop about it, Kristin Kontrol’s new single ‘Show Me’ is a stylistic sea-change for Kristin Kontrol from her Dum Dum Girls days.
Sounding like an songwriter full of the expectation and excitement of exploration, Kristin Kontrol has a production that simply basks the glorious synth-pop opulence of the music.
‘Show Me’ swings for the fences, evolving beats, layer harmonies, weaving saxophone melodies and Welchez distinctly beguiling voice are all pushed to the forefront of a song that demands to be listened to on repeat.
