For fans of Talking Heads, 80’s era King Crimson. Dobbeltgjenger is an eclectic and, one could also say, mischievous rock band from Bergen, Norway, with a definite edge.
The band’s lyrics tell tales of deep-rooted neuroticism accompanied by contagious grooves, a futuristic guitar sound and soulful rock vocals. Dobbeltgjenger consists of members from MAJOR PARKINSON, OSSICLES, DEPRESNO and 9 GRADER NORD. The band draws their diverse influences from both the past and the present: Queens of The Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, Talking Heads, Led Zeppelin, Joy Division, Jeff Buckley and ZZ-Top to name a few. "Limbohead", the band‘s second album will be released in the Spring 0f 2018. It is a colourful depiction of an anxious reality, where doors are locked in order to shut out the dangerous conspiracies of the world. Paranoid themes are depicted through a varied and comprehensive rock sound and a vocal that alternates between vulnerable falsettos, punkish screams and rhythmic narratives. "Limbohead", showcases a more focused band than on the debut, “When I’ve Gone to Space”, but the trademark musical diversity and catchy groove is still apparent. Dobbeltgjenger is here to bring back the groove and fun to the serious and eclectic rock style. Let’s just call it futuristic retro rock.
