What they came up with - Double King's debut, self-titled LP - is a rock & roll record, with pop songwriting that recalls the era of The Replacements and Echo & the Bunnymen, as well as post-Beatles George Harrison ("Four White Horsemen," "Monsters"). The songs are deliberately lean, guitar-driven, and mostly recorded live to bring out the range and unique energy of Dieringer's vocal performance. The record is to be released on Sept. 10th, via their own label, Kill The Messenger Records.
“Gorgeous . . . . From a tradition of unnervingly confidential, light-voiced male singers: João Gilberto, Arthur Russell, Lou Barlow of Sebadoh, Elliott Smith, Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu.” – Ben Ratliff, on “Oh, Light”
“Intimate, quirky songs with layered vocals that flow over warm acoustic guitar. Lindley colors his soft harmonies and restrained writing style with carefully placed electronics.” – Bob Boilen, on “Nightcat!”
As a songwriter, Tica refuses to turn away from age-old themes: heartbreak, desire, vows of friendship. Yet her lyrics are filled with invention and the subtleties of her voice never cease to pioneer new sonic spaces.
