Debut Single ”Disconnect Me”


disconnectmeSwedish record label Dudes of Mayhem is making its first release on October 28th, 2016: Go Double Vision and their super cool debut single ”Disconnect me”.

The Swedish/American duo, consisting of Lars Söderberg and Randy Goodrum, got together in 2011 and immediately hit it off in the studio. The main goal from the start was writing for other artists/bands, this eventually changed during the coming years and in 2015 Go Double Vision saw the light of day.

The song ”Disconnect me” was written after a long day of travelling with the flu and coping with cancelled flights, snow storms and moldy vending machine food. Frustration turned in to a cool song about the need to disconnect, go out in to the wild and return to the pre social media era. If you’re in to stuff like Beck, Daft Punk and lowfi you’ll love this!

Song written by Go Double Vision and Adam Salomon. Recorded, produced and mix by band member Lars Söderberg, mastered by Stefan Aronsson (Hellsongs, BLKMGK)
