With fuzzy guitars, hooks and melodies galore, & a tip of the hat in the direction of fellow Canuck Danko Jones, this high energy, alt-rocker is a seriously cracking tune and perfect to blast across the airwaves!
Double Experience are an Ottawa-based group who combine modern rock sounds with a geeky worldview that is all their own. By taking influence from Muse, Coheed and Cambria and Queens of the Stone Age, the band bounce between sounds and genres in a quest to compose music as diverse as an arcade gallery. The genre-pinballing is unified with their quirky lyrical subject matter that ranges from the modern-day application of artificial intelligence to video games. Double Experience have bonded with a passionate global fanbase with their undeniable live prowess, all while maintaining a strong DIY-ethic that saw them through 750 concerts across 16 countires.
By day, mild-mannered band members Ian Nichols (vocals, bass) and Brock Tinsley (guitar) deliver band-oriented workshops and panels at conferences, conventions and festivals (IndieWeek, MAGFest, Ottawa ComicCon), teaching up-and-coming creatives how to take control of their own destiny in a similar way as the duo’s musical alter-ego. In 2016, their Destiny-themed anthem “The Glimmer Shot” caught the attention of the videogame’s developers, earning the band unique in-game rewards and over half a million Spotify plays to boot.
Much more to come from this fabulous band this year!
