Drawing their inspiration from everything from astronauts lost in space to old video games, Norway’s DOBBELTGJENGER was formed in the musical cradle that is Bergen in 2015. The band features an experienced and skilled lineup of musicians that include Sondre Veland (MAJOR PARKINSON, OSSICLES) on drums, Jakob Sønnesyn (DEPRESNO, 9 GRADER NORD) on bass, Vegard Wikne (OCEAN OF LOTION) on guitars and vocals, and Knut Martin Rasmussen Langeland on guitar.
Whilst the DOBBELTGJENGER ‘s 2016 debut album “When I’ve Gone to Space” was heavily influenced by progressive rock and elements of jazz and psychedelia, “Limbohead” represents a shift away from a narrow psychedelic expression towards a more eclectic sound. The end result is described by the band as a “punk-inspired, and more hands-on, record” replete with explosive stoner riffs and electric slide-guitars.
Lyrically, “Limbohead” recounts tales of deep-rooted neuroticism, a sort of colourful tapestry of an anxious reality, where doors are locked, in order to shut out the dangerous conspiracies of the world. But whilst the subject matter is serious, DOBBELTGJENGER are all about bringing back the groove and the fun to genres that sometimes take themselves a tad too seriously by using contagious grooves, a futuristic guitar sound, and soulful rock vocals that alternate between vulnerable falsettos, punkish screams and rhythmic narratives.

1. Tin Foil Hat
