Dobbeltgjenger (Norway) - ‘Building Skyscrapers’ (single from forthcoming album ‘Smooth Failing’)


I wrote about Norwegian band Dobbeltgjenger just a couple of weeks back, and I really don’t like to feature bands in such quick succession, so I’ll keep this short and sweet. But new single ‘Building Skyscrapers’ has gradually got inside me, to the extent I’ve found myself listening on repeat. And then again and again after I’ve had it on repeat. You get the idea, it’s just completely addictive.


Maybe it’s because the track is not quite what I was expecting, given they are a band who normally deliver slightly leftfield but groovy alternative rock, and I guess ‘Buidling Skyscrapers’ is actually pretty much a ballad. But not just any ballad, a blooming good, soaring ballad, with a quite lovely melody, it feels mysterious, tantalising and that tune just disappears off in a direction that you won’t quite expect.


There’s even an official music video, which you can watch here.

With this track and previous release ‘Johanna’, things are looking very positive for their new Album, which is entitled ‘Smooth Failing’ and which is due for release on April 9th. it can be pre-ordered on Bandcamp.
