According to Love B. Scott, former Danity Kane members, Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex, have decided to leave the group which spawned their careers to create a duo called Dumblonde.
If you remember not too long ago Danity Kane revealed they were working on new material with all original members excluding D. Woods. That quickly changed as the group decided to go their separate ways after releasing a farewell album, DK3, but still trying to get back into the spotlight Aubrey and Shannon have decided to keep pursuing a musical career.
According to their official website:
Dumblonde is an independent alternative Dance/Pop duo created by singer/songwriters Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex formerly of the multi-platinum, international, chart topping female group Danity Kane. The girls were discovered on the hit MTV show “Making the Band”, and grew to be noted in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the only girl group to have two number one consecutive albums on Billboard. In their ten years sharing the stage these two formed an unbreakable bond while touring the world with many artists, including opening for the Black Eyed Peas, Backstreet Boys, and Christina Aguilera. Their indie pop debut has strong dance and alternative influences reminiscent of acts like The Ting Tings, and La Roux. The combination of their iconic blonde appeal, transcendent harmonies and powerful stage presence is a style unique only to Dumblonde.
Do you think Dumblonde will be able to have the career that they’re hoping to have? Are you excited about their new music? I’m excited to see what magic they can make in the studio!
