(12"/Download) Ninja Tune ZEN12262/ZENDNLS262, 2010-05-24

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. "I focused on capturing sound, phenomena that exist independently of people and personality", Emika explains. "But once back in the studio they become the language I use to tell stories".

Press Release :
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. "I focused on capturing sound, phenomena that exist independently of people and personality," Emika explains. "But once back in the studio they become the language I use to tell stories."

"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 ? "Tell me, which side do you pick?"

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.

Once again 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.
