Project Description

Doppelganger

A dark turn for Atomic Pines, Doppelganger contemplates alternate realities and the fine line one may walk from one existence to the next.

This track began as an improv in arpeggiation on the Korg minilogue, steadily growing more grim and grinding as time passed. The FM and Moog bass further enhance the weight of a dragging tempo while sibling guitar and Moog leads weave ’round interjections of long booming chip-toms.

While the release marks a full year since Nosferatu brought this project into reality, the lyrics of Doppelganger were written soon after relocating to the pacific northwest. Away from family and friends, solitary introspection produced more abstract prose set over an effectively creeping composition.
