about

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.

lyrics

On days when the mountains dwell obscured
In the wake of a sullen sky
In the wake of a sullen sky
I long for, the ashen demon I left behind
Who paints poison pictures on choking walls
With a numb and aimless heart

On nights when the haunted vagrants float
In the shadows of a starless night
In the shadows of a starless night
I watch, a lonesome doppelgänger drag his bones
‘neath the weeping of the cedar and wire
They frame a window to a parallel time

And all I see is you disappear

Take me far, far, far from this loneliness I feel
When eternity is over leave my body to the hills
Oh release me, from this emptiness my dear
When the last of me’s forgotten, will my regrets too disappear?

A drifting static washes over
Neon bleeding colors while
A trillion whispers rust the vans along street
Where apparitions decohere

Take me far, far, far from this loneliness I feel
When eternity is over leave my body to the hills
Oh release me, from this emptiness my dear
When the last of me’s forgotten, will my regrets too disappear?
