There’s “no need to sugarcoat reality.” So say the talented team of artists that comprise Norwegian alternative pop rock band Dobbeltgjenger in their latest release from Spider Music, “Good Looking Human on the Side of the Road.”
In countless reviews, this band has been called “fresh,” “new,” and “unique,” but let there be no mistaking the fact that Dobbeltgjenger is a rock band, but a rock band with their own European sound that has global appeal — the reason why Spider is excited to work with them.
This mesmerizing single from their newest album captures you immediately with a hypnotic beat that quickly underpins blended waves of synthesizer, guitar, bass, and drums making you listen closely to another poetic lyric for which Dobbeltgjenger is known: if there is a way to deliver messages of discontent and indifference in a manner that is both playful and serious in the same song, these guys will do it.
“Good Looking Human on the Side of the Road” showcases the talents of Vegard Wikne, who wrote the lyrics, provides the vocals, and plays guitar, bass, and synthesizer and who penned this music with Bastian Veland who adds guitar and synthesizer skills, too. With Sondra Veland on drums and Jone Kuven on bass, the words and music come together in a way that makes you want to listen again and again. Spider Music is proud to present the restlessly creative and uncommon sound of Dobbeltgjenger.
Just when you think you’ve heard it all.
Lyrics: Vegard Wikne
Music: Vegard Wikne & Bastian Veland
