If you don’t know who the Doubleclicks are, you really should. The group is made up of two sisters, Angela Webber and Aubrey Turner who are nerdy bards, inspiring so many geeks (like myself) around the world through song. We love them, and you should too.
The Doubleclicks have released a new music video for their new single, “Women Know Math,” a heartfelt message in song that is a beautiful feminist song that resists gender expectations and is an encouraging ballad for anyone who self-identifies as a woman. The video features the work of 50 female and non-binary artists, and representing the perspectives of artists with different backgrounds (whose work and backgrounds are showcased on their website). “We wanted to be sure that our argument wasn’t coming only from a cis/white woman perspective, so diversity in artists was important to us,” Angela told us.
The song demonstrates the diverse experiences of women and the struggles we face, while giving us an anthem to resist the restrictions that keep us from being who we truly are, and it is truly a work of art.
Beyond the single, The Doubleclicks are also Kickstarting their 5th album, “Love Problems,” describing it as their most personal. Among the tracks to be included are “Lord of the Rings,” a post-breakup song about holding onto the passions and fandoms after a relationship ends (poorly) and “Sensitive Badass” which tackles the idea that the two categories aren’t mutually exclusive, particularly when talking about empathy and fighting for what’s right in the world, as well as several others.
Not only is the Kickstarter a great way to support positive voices in the geek community creating amazing geeky art, but it’s also a great way to get a hold of the many awesome songs by The Doubleclicks, with backer levels including ones that include their entire discography.
The Doubleclicks have always wanted to represent a positive, empowering and feminist voice inside nerd and online communities with their music, but it is how they are able to speak on a personal level that makes their music sing in our hearts.
