A child of the internet, Doprah was born from an online collaboration between Steven Marr and Indira Force, resulting in the self-titled EP which exploded on New Zealand student radio and beyond in 2014. “All hail the arrival of another odd-pop export from New Zealand,” waxed Spin magazine.

Since then, Doprah have released a number of cinematic music videos (including the J-pop inspired YouTube comment hotbed 'Stranger People'), sold out venues across their homeland, dipped their toes in Australian waters and journeyed to the other side of the world to play New York's CMJ Festival.

The group have built a reputation as an entrancing six-piece live unit, every member utilized to achieve sonic detail, layering and depth worthy of their recordings. The effect is altogether dreamy, intense and immersive.

Following the success of their breakout self-titled EP and a series of captivating videos, Doprah is set to deliver their highly-anticipated debut album Wasting in February 2016, from the eerie, reed-filled depths of its conception.

Recorded over a period of three years following 2011’s Christchurch earthquake, the album’s atmosphere is dark, undulating and electric. Sounds throb, crack, glisten and weave across a genre-melting sonic landscape. “We're lost, but we're safe... and there's a strange peace to be found in this wasteland,” remarked Yours Truly magazine.

Supporting act to be announced.
