The eclectic and catchy alt-rock outfit Dobbeltgjenger is releasing their fourth studio album, ‘The Twins’. The new record is about the battles that are waged against oneself. This is conceptualized through two internal and rivalling twins. The album reflects a chaotic time in songwriter Vegard Wikne’s life in the aftermaths of a mental breakdown.
The album reflects this process, both musically and lyrically. The music is energetic, manic and colourful, but also dark, smothering and hard. It changes and varies, just as life does when in a chaotic time. Lyrically the album is self reflective, sometimes from the “bad” twin’s point of view and sometimes from a more cohesive one. “Being really mentally unwell can feel like observing yourself and your life from the outside, without anyway of interjecting” Wikne says
