Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls and Brandon from Crocodiles are already partners in life, and run label Zoo Music together. It makes sense the two would collaborate musically, too, and now they are, as Haunted Hearts. The pair will release their debut album, Initiation, via Zoo Music on May 27. You can watch the video for first single "Johnny Jupiter" below. While the track doesn't sound exactly like either DDGs or Crocodiles, it's not like Dee Dee and Brandon take a wild leap into reggae or anything (though that might be interesting to hear).

Meanwhile, Dee Dee and the other Dum Dum Girls bring their tour to NYC this week for two sold-out shows with Portland's Blouse opening: tonight (3/25) at Bowery Ballroom and Wednesday (3/26) at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
