Doprah Release "Stranger People" Video

Doprah Release "Stranger People" Video
Today Doprah release their video for the track "Stranger People".

The video premiered in the US at SPIN Magazine, who described the video as follows:

"Apparently taking a cue from Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, our young heroes appear as tiny weirdos in a neon-dipped dollhouse, accompanied by creepily masked dancers-as-anime-characters (word to Le1f). Indira eventually becomes some sort of kawaii princess, and Marr appears as the lost male member of Sailor Moon's crew. Awesome. As for the song, it strikes a gauzy balance between the gothy inclinations of fellow Kiwi Lorde, the noirish husk of Portishead, and the curious mood-making of cloud-rap. Compare to or call it whatever you want — Doprah have got their own wild thing going on, and Ms. Force is aptly named." - SPIN

Doprah released their debut EP on Arch Hill Recordings on June 6th.

The video video for 'Stranger People' created directorial duo Thunderlips from local outfit Candlelit Pictures...full credits on the video youtube page.

Doprah are the duo Steven Marr and Indira Force. They formed in 2012 and hail from Christchurch, NZ. 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 this year'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.

Doprah Track Listing
1. Stranger People
2. San Pedro
3. Whatever You Want
4. Love That I Need
5. Stranger People (Race Banyon remix)
