Doprah - Doprah EP

On their self-title EP, Christchurch, NZ duo Doprah drops five tracks of blissed-out synth pop, relaxing and enchanting in equal measure.  I think the running time reaches about 23 minutes, but I really lose track of time when I play this record.  The charming, breathy vocals, swelling synths and skittering beats float like chimes on a breezy summer day.  It all goes down easy, but the tracks are deceptively complex.  Of particular note are the first two tracks, "Love That I Need" and "San Pedro", both of which can be streamed below.

Doprah are Steven John Marr and Indira Force.  The Doprah EP is out now via New Zealand label Arch Hill Recordings.  US fans can source it digitally at the Bandcamp link below.
