Doppelganger is a rock & roll duo from the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Through the most basic instrumentation, we write primal music with memorable hooks.

Biography

Doppelganger was born out of frustration with the local music scene in NYC. Though we live amongst thousands of bands, there seemed to be a lack of energy to most local music. So we decided to take matters into our own hands and form a band.
In the spring of 2008 we started working on music, with no clear definition of who would play what. We tried using a drum machine, but were not happy with the results. It wasn't until Ryan (whom had never played drums before) sat down behind the kit, that our sound began to take shape. We drew influence from a variety of genres, such as early rock & roll, garage, surf and shoegaze. Though mainly the energy of the punk we both grew up on proliferates our style. It was also decided not to pursue other members, as the limitations of being a duo lead to creative approaches while tackling songwriting and arrangements.
We practiced relentlessly, started playing shows, and haven't stopped since. We are currently in the process of mixing our debut EP and honing our high energy live show on stages all over NYC.
