Arch Hill Recordings are very pleased to welcome Christchurch's Doprah to the label.
Dorah have very quickly captured the ears of those in the know. They recently opened for Lorde at her post Grammy winning Auckland homecoming show, played St Jeromes Laneway Festival, performed with Liam Finn, Camp A Low Hum and more.
The band have evolved from the two piece of Indira Force and Steven John Marr into a charged up six member thermion worshipping "evil cult"
The blogs have also quickly switched on to Doprah. Pigeons and Planes called their music "beautifully understated" and Yours Truly wrote "We’re lost, but we’re safe. We’re doomed."
Doprah have completed their debut EP, the release date will be announced soon. Watch this space.
The track San Pedro is available to listen to here.
The video for San Pedro is available to view here.
"We’re lost, but we’re safe. We’re doomed, but we know it. And there’s a strange peace to be found in this wasteland." - Yours Truly
"Beautifully understated compositions rooted in Radiohead’s family of theremin synths and the weaving texture of male and female vocals." - Pigeons and Planes
"Falling in love with Christchurch duo DOPRAH was a little bit like jumping into the ocean with bricks attached to my ankles (in the best possible way)" - Purple Sneakers
"Perfectly moody. Driven by that visceral chain-gang beat, and set against that Radiohead-esque baseline, you can’t help but be hypnotized" - Portals
"Like the roots of a tree that twist, turn and go everywhere they please, the psychedelic drug tripping sounds of Doprah on “San Pedro” not only go in the ground but they also root up and out into an ethereal haze of drug induced sonic waves" - Hilly Dilly
