Biography

At least two artists are known as Double:

1) The Swiss duo of Felix Haug (drums and keyboards) and Kurt Maloo (guitar and vocals), formerly part of a trio called Ping Pong, scored an international hit in 1986 with the atmospheric ballad “The Captain of Her Heart” (#16 US pop, #4 US AC, #8 UK, #17 Canada) from their debut album Blue. It would be their only substantial hit, with “Devils Ball,” the lead single from 1987 follow-up album Dou3le, stalling at #71 in the UK and failing to chart in the US. The duo split in 1989 and Haug died following a heart attack in 2004.

2) Double is the stage name for Japanese R&B singer Takako Hirasawa and previously was a duo consisting of Hirasawa and her sister, Sachiko. “Shake” was the duo’s highest charting single (#21 Japan). After the death of her sister in May 1999, Takako continued as Double and is regarded as one of the first artists to bring American-style R&B to Japan. She also portrays a sexualized image, a rarity for Japanese artists.
