Doppelgänger

Album: Familiars (2014)
  • A doppelgänger is a double, a look-alike. The Antlers' frontman Peter Silberman explained this song to Pitchfork: "That song is about confronting the things in yourself that you fear the most. I know that I try to compartmentalize those pieces of my personality, like it's some other version of me. But if you can face your dark side head-on, you realize that it's all part of what's going on inside your head. It's something you need to learn to make friends with." >>
