With big beats and playful narratives, San Francisco’s Double Duchess transcends genres and genders through its live experience and high-energy delivery. Krylon Superstar’s mesmerizing voice and performance art genius, coupled with davO’s emceeing and production deftness, delivers a raw and campy electronic sound. Double Duchess‘ musical influences include Baltimore club, booty breaks, and ballroom house, all wrapped in a world of couture fashion.
Together they’ve been heating up the national queer scene since the release of their debut EP ‘Hey Girl!’ in March 2012. After their second video for ‘Bucket Betch’ was released, mountains of local buzz, followed by some national recognition, escalated their touring schedule. Along with being featured at some of the best queer parties in the US, they’d shared bills with similar acts like, Big Freedia, Le1f, Penguin Prison, Bonde de Role, and more. Official Pride Festivals in Seattle, Palm Springs, and Austin has celebrated the duo’s success, as well as the 2013 SXSW festival and 2012 Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco.
In April 2013 they released the single and arresting video ‘Deviant’ which introduces a glimpse of a semi-darker, heavily refined, but still raw sound. After a smattering of live performances in Summer and Fall of 2013, the duo finished out the year in the studio, collaborating with artists Nicky da B, TT the Artist, and Big Dipper, to complete a fully developed new batch of material to release the EP “Nocturnal” and full-length album, all in 2014.
