ABOUT THIS ITEM
Is ignorance bliss? That’s the question Emika asks on the second single from her forthcoming and eagerly awaited debut album.
Once again mixing pop with dark tones taken from dubstep and techno, the sonics reflect paranoid perspectives of relationships poised between fulfilment and collapse. Atmospherics were captured in Teufelsberg, West Berlin on a cold winter’s day. “Double Edge” revels in double-think and mirror logic. Do you want to know, or is it better not to? Do you understand yourself as yourself or as the self other people perceive? "Double Edge" is remixed by Pinch, producer and head of hugely respected Bristol label Tectonic, turning up the atmospherics another notch, ripping Emika’s vocals to pieces until they sound like the paranoid mutterings in a David Lynch movie.
Emika shows her effortless way of combining cutting edge sonics, with a natural feel for melody and story telling, which stay with the listener long after the first listen.
