Earlier this year, Kristin Welchez, better known as Dum Dum Girls leader Dee Dee, reinvented herself with the new synthpop alias Kristin Kontrol and released an impressive new wave album called X-Communicate. And now it looks like that wasn’t a one-off. Today, Kristin Kontrol has returned with a new single called “Baby Are You In?” It’s a stark and dramatic dance-pop banger, and I immediately like it better than everything on the album. The track has a great, dramatic build to it, and it showcases Welchez’s powerful voice like nothing I’ve heard from her since the Dum Dum Girls’ “Lord Knows.” Check it out below.
The “Baby Are You In?” single is out today on Sub Pop.
