About

Gazelle Twin (plus support from Nina Kohout)

Gazelle Twin’s new live show is a plunge into darkness. Memories and dreams electrified by fear. Rooted in the theatrics of the séance and the phenomena of ghosts. If we can summon the spirits of our past, or present selves, what would they tell us? Are we the ghost, or the haunted?

Gazelle Twin is the performance moniker for acclaimed composer, producer, singer and visual artist Elizabeth Bernholz. As an ambassador for women in music production and an alumnus of the University of Sussex, Bernholz is the inspiration behind the Gazelle Twin Scholarship for Women in Music Technology. Gazelle Twin returns to ACCA this autumn to perform from her forthcoming album due for release on Invada Records in October 2023.

“The music is her most lustrous, luxuriant and darkly beautiful to date… A mighty musical exorcism” Uncut 9/10

“Elizabeth Bernholz needles her way into your bones with this dripping minimalist encroach…” The Guardian

Bernholz created her “transformative” Gazelle Twin performance persona in 2009, to encompass composition, studio albums, soundtracks, art installations and live performance, intended to openly address a deep-rooted aversion to traditional and contemporary norms across the music industry, particularly for women. Her ever-changing, identity-warping personas based on powerful, emotional themes and a fiercely independent spirit has driven her output and many collaborations since.

She has independently released three critically acclaimed studio albums to date; 'The Entire City' (2011), 'Unflesh' (2014) and 'Pastoral' (2018), together with three soundtrack LPs from album off-shoot performance projects; 'Out of Body' (2015), 'Kingdom Come' (2017) and 'Deep England' with NYX Electronic Drone Choir (2021).

As a newly established soundtrack composer, her credits for Film, TV, and Video games include: AMC’s 'The Walking Dead', 'The Virtues' (C4), 'Cyberpunk 2077', 'Cyberpunk: Edgerunners' (Netflix), 'Nocturne' (Amazon/Blumhouse), 'The Power' (BFI/Shudder) and 'Then You Run' (Kudos/Sky). Her collaborations as vocalist and producer include Gary Numan, Halsey (through Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross), Maxine Peake, Perc, Blanck Mass and DJ Dave Clarke and more.

Recently shortlisted for the Arts Foundation Electronic Music Award, Gazelle Twin’s new album is set to be released in late 2023 on renowned British label Invada Records.

Press reviews for previous Gazelle Twin albums

"...like a particularly gruesome horror movie that you feel the need to watch again and again" The Guardian 4* Contemporary Album of the Month (on 'Deep England')

"On her latest extraordinary album, Elizabeth Bernholz serves the full English with extra discomfort, grotesquery and barely contained horror" The Quietus (on 'Pastoral')

"...belongs to a proud tradition of English satire, plumbing the depths of the nation’s psyche and twisting it to wryly discomforting ends" Pitchfork (on 'Pastoral')

"...a masterpiece that feels timeless" The Skinny 10* (on 'Pastoral')
