Twice a Man are an ambient electronica music group based in Gothenburg, Sweden, comprising members Dan Söderqvist and Karl Gasleben (born Ingemar Ljungström).

Dan and Karl met in Gothenburg during the early 1970s when they played in groups Älgarnas Trädgård and Anna Själv Tredje. The duo was formed in 1978 as Cosmic Overdose.

After changing their name to their current title in 1981, Twice a Man released their first album, Music for Girls, in 1982. The group have consistently used synthesizers and electronic effects to create their theatrical and atmospheric soundscapes, and from 1984 they began to work with samplers.

The group has collaborated with numerous musicians, mainly with Jocke Söderqvist, and has released numerous albums. They have also written music for theatre (including several works for the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm), television, film and radio. The group are best known outside of their native country for composing the soundtrack to the computer game Kula World.

In the early 1990s, Twice a Man created a side-project entitled The Butterfly Effect. They later continued as Twice a Man, but during the decade they decreased their production of studio albums and tours to concentrate on project-based work, often in collaboration with theatre, visual artists or companies.

The group released their most recent album, Icicles, in April 2010.
