The Doubleclicks are a pair of sisters — Angela Webber and Aubrey Webber — who sing about Dungeons & Dragons, dinosaurs, and Mr. Darcy. They play cello and ukulele. They have been called snarky, geeky, and sweet. Their latest album, Lasers & Feelings, includes songs about Mars Curiosity, meeting people on the Twitter, and Geek Girl pride, and debuted in the top 10 on the Billboard comedy charts. Their single for that album, a geek girl anthem called “Nothing to Prove” has been viewed over 1 million times on YouTube. The Doubleclicks tour the country regularly, playing at game stores, comic shops, and conventions, and have shared bills with nerd and comedy superstars including Jonathan Coulton, Paul and Storm and Wil Wheaton. In early 2014, the Doubleclicks raised over $80,000 in a Kickstarter campaign to fund a new album and a music video project.
Since starting their band in 2011 with a weekly new-song YouTube project and the animated music video for their Dungeons & Dragons love song, The Doubleclicks have toured their clever brand of folk music around the country, usually in comic shops, game stores or in their fans’ living rooms. The duo has also performed at w00tstock shows with Paul & Storm and Wil Wheaton, and entertained audiences at pop culture, gaming and sci-fi conventions.
The duo’s first full-length album “Chainmail and Cello” (2012) intones the life and loves of the geek girl – with soungs about love, Velociraptors, and Pride & Prejudice.
“A surprising number of musicians pander to geeks eager to hear anyone acknowledge Firefly, but the Doubleclicks’ music—sharp and clever, with a heavy dose of melancholy—comes from a more universal place” — Erik Henriksen, The Portland Mercury
In 2012 the band also released a CD of their music for kids called “Worst Superpower Ever.”
In 2012, the Doubleclicks also persevered through the year-long Song Fu 2012 monthly songwriting challenge as a featured artist, wrote the official theme song for party game Cards Against Humanity, and released a 5-song Christmas EP and performed on the Jonathan Coulton Cruise.
Their 2013 album “Lasers and Feelings” debuted on the Billboard charts at #7! The music video for the song “Nothing To Prove” off that album has over 1 million YouTube views. The ran “Weekly Song Wednesday,” a project to post new songs on YouTube every week from September 25 til the end of 2013.
In early 2014, the Doubleclicks raised over $80,000 in a Kickstarter campaign to fund a new album and a music video project. They are currently working on a new album with producer Mike Phirman.
