Doprah

Bio

Doprah are the duo Steven Marr and Indira Force. They formed in 2012 and hail from Christchurch. They have released a number of singles to critical acclaim, two of which went to #1 on their Alternative Chart. Doprah were the support for Lorde at her post-Grammy homecoming show in Auckland and were part of 2014's Laneway Festival. In the studio Marr handles production duties and Force the the majority of vocals. Their sound is not so much international as intergalactic - noise that stretches outwards and inward as if concocted in a particularly colorful area of your mind. For the live show the duo adds an additional 4 people to the mix resulting in an immersive experience.

"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
