In the mood for a bizarre British electronic music trip? Then Gazelle Twin
will be just what the doctor ordered. Although her face is always hidden, the womyn behind Gazelle Twin is known as Elizabeth Bernholz. A rather normal name for someone making acid-inspired electro, complete with bursts of mechanic beats, haunting, warbly synths, and song names like "Guts," "I Feel Blood," and "Anti Body." Gazelle Twin is bizarre, but instantly likeable anyway, filled with clicks and noise, like a lovesick computer meets a mad genius Brit. Fans of The Knife will love Gazelle Twin. Elizabeth has been making Gazelle Twin speak for about four years now, and has nightmarishly honed the music into a sharp, albeit dark, electronic haze. It's conceptual yet visceral -- and only a live performance can get Gazelle Twin's true power across. Bernholz's art and her horror-inspired videos make the whole Gazelle Twin experience complete, as they are projected to back her singing and slinking across the stage in her blue PE uniform and obscured face. Gazelle Twin is part art house horror, part industrial electronic music, but all ready to make you shiver in glee -- or fear, depending on how strange you like your musical performances.
