Wrexham Alt-Rock Newcomers Release ‘Comfort You’ Free Download Ahead Of Neck Deep Supports
Alt-rock newcomers Doppelgänger are today sharing a free download of a brand new track ‘Comfort You’, the b-side to their latest single ‘Hate The Things You Love’, ahead of their much coveted support slots with fast rising pop punks Neck Deep in January.
The Wrexham based quartet are one of those rare finds who have an almost singularly unique sound. Stuck in a twilight zone between the weird-punk of Pulled Apart By Horses, the math-trickery of At The Drive In and the crushing riffs of Every Time I Die, their churning maelstrom of guitar thrashes and whirls menacingly beneath unfamiliar minor melodies and harmonies.
Stream & download ‘Comfort You’ here:
“Comfort You is our take on an aggressive love song where we tried to essentially fit in as much of ‘us’ as possible, in terms of loud riffs to quiet slower parts, harmonies, screams and STOPS!” says hyper front man Dom Simms.
“Lyrically I’d probably say it’s about that part after a break up where you be like ‘Bitch, I don’t need you anymore!’” he laughs mischievously, before adding “Sorry. Essentially though, it is.”
Simms is keen to point out that they have “far too much sugar before each show” and it’s this infectious, boundless and uncontrollable energy that makes them such an exciting prospect.
“We love recording, playing shows, hiring vans and all other things BAND” the singer continues enthusiastically ”The other side of us is working full time in order to pay for doing all things BAND which sucks BIG time. Work relations consist of phones, newspaper adverts, picture frames and baguettes. Band relations consist of F*CKING RIFFS and laughing lots.”
For a small band from Wrexham with no touring experience, Doppelgänger are getting a lot of people hot under the collar already – something we can imagine continuing when they unleash more material and tour dates in 2014.
