British composer, musician and producer Elizabeth Bernholz, conceived Gazelle Twin in 2009, under which she has since released the critically acclaimed albums; Pastoral (2018), Kingdom Come (2017), Unflesh (2014) and her debut, The Entire City (2011) on her own label, Anti-Ghost Moon Ray.
Her vocal-led music presents dystopian, emotional themes through experimental electronic production and extraordinary live performances which feature changing, masked personas. Influenced by classical, choral and sacred music, as much as pop, industrial, and EDM; her compositions encompass euphoric and haunting choral landscapes, to intense, beat-driven songs. Unflesh was themed on teenage anxiety, body horror and body dysmorphia, while Kingdom Come, an audio-visual performance piece, depicted a cinematic “hellscape" inspired by JG Ballard's final novel. Gazelle Twin's third studio album, Pastoral, conjured English folkloric traditions with a punk sensibility, made in response to post-Brexit rural England.
In between her own albums and touring internationally, Gazelle Twin has frequently collaborated with artists as a vocalist, including; Gary Numan, John Foxx, Perc, and Alex Banks. In 2019 Gazelle Twin collaborated with Max de Wardener to create a new performance ‘The Power and the Glory’ with the BBC Concert Orchestra at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall. Later that year she returned to the same venue to present Deep England, an ensemble performance made with NYX Electronic Drone Choir. The Deep England studio album was released in March 2021 to critical acclaim.
Gazelle Twin’s music has been commissioned for, or featured in Films, Theatre productions, Television series, and Video games including; The Walking Dead (AMC), The New Pope (HBO), How To Get Away With Murder (ABC), The Virtues (Channel 4), Prometheus (20th Century Fox). She created the exclusive track 'History’ for the history-making video game 'Cyberpunk 2077’, and has composed two feature, horror film scores to date - Nocturne (for the ‘Welcome To The Blumhouse’ series by Amazon Studios / Blumhouse, 2020), and The Power (Shudder, BFI, 2021), in collaboration with Max de Wardener. Both soundtracks have had physical release through UK label Invada Records. Lakeshore Records released Cyberpunk 2077 OST and Nocturne in 2020.
Gazelle Twin is an ambassador for women in music and fronts the 'Gazelle Twin Scholarship for Women in Music Technology' at the University of Sussex, UK. She is currently writing a new album and working on new commissions for 2021 and beyond.
