Composer, dark electronics producer, and visual artist Elizabeth Bernholz – aka Gazelle Twin – today shares a new EP, “Black Dog Live”, out now via Invada Records. The new EP features four tracks recorded live at the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, Brighton on the Black Dog tour, and comes accompanied by two videos from the ACCA show.

The new live EP features 4 tracks from Gazelle Twin’s fourth studio album, “Black Dog” (2023): “Two Worlds”, “Fear Keeps Us Alive”, “A Door Opens” and “Unstoppable Force”.

Bernholz explains: “Our performance at ACCA to a warm and welcoming audience felt significant in the journey of this album and tour. Strange coincidences and happenings also occurred during the making period in the space, which is on the site of the University of Sussex, that I attended some 18 years prior. These loops, cycles and ghostly encounters are a deeply embedded theme in the album, and so I feel extremely grateful to be able to release these songs.”

You can check out two videos below from the EP.

In further news, a unique “Black Dog” performance has just been announced for the British Library, London on 1 November (get tickets here). Taking place at the grand entrance hall of the Grade I British Library, one of the largest libraries in the world, “Black Dog” will be reworked by Gazelle Twin and Max de Wardener with the London Contemporary Orchestra, conducted by Robert Ames (their second collaboration after working together on “The Power and the Glory” with the BBC Concert Orchestra in 2022). The specially commissioned performance opens the British Library’s new season, “Tales of the Weird: An Autumnal Festival”, and attendees for the event will be able to see the new British Library exhibition, “Medieval Women”.

Here’s the full “Black Dog” album.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
