The silver lining in Danity Kane breaking up (if there is one) is that the three final members are all still making music.
Dawn Richard (or D∆WN) is preparing to release a new EP, RedemptionHeart, and Aubry O’Day and Shannon Bex are preparing to do the same.
Whereas Richard is already an established solo artist, O’Day and Bex are introducing the world to a new group and sound.
The ladies have become a duo under the moniker Dumblonde. According to a press release from a few months ago, the duo is striving to make “independent alternative dance/pop.”
Their debut song “white lightening” certainly falls into that category. Unfortunately, it also gets swallowed into the generic sound of it, making for a pretty bland debut.
The electronic production is predictable and the ladies’ vocals and lyrics lack any memorable moments. But that hasn’t stopped it from reaching no. 6 on the iTunes’ Dance chart.
The duo is scheduled to release their self-titled debut album on Sept. 25, meaning there is plenty of time for me to be sold on this new sound.
