Watch: Double Helix Premiere New Single/Video "Doppelgänger"

London-based electronic duo Double Helix composed by Patrick Smith (Synths, Programming, Vocals), Kim Engelhardt (Bass Guitar) have premiered the video for their hypnotic new single "Doppelgänger".

The song, the follow up to debut single ‘Rat Rave’ (Slow Dance Records, January 2022), will be out on June 21 as part of the debut compilation from Ransom Note sub label Human Endeavour. Pre-order it here.

Doppelgänger is further drawing from the well of club-oriented influences, it is reminiscent of acid electronica of the 90’s, pitting the iconic sound of the Roland 303 against darker industrial tones, balearic synths and a relentless, pulsating motorik beat.   

The accompanying music video is also a striking visual companion to the track. Shot and directed by the band themselves, it evokes a cinematic sensation not unlike a Gaspar Noé nightmare, with violent red strobes and a surrealist detachment. Dancer and performance artist Giorgia Pirozzi contorts and bends her body, creating intoxicating blurs of motion, whilst the bass is pounding like an anxious palpitation.
