Doris Indie Rock Nocturnal Vibes With “Storm Doris”
Indie rock band Doris has released their latest album, Storm Doris, and it’s a gem. The ambient indie rock album features great clean jangling guitars and stunning harmonic dreamy soundscapes that will leave you wanting more. The album captures the essence of the band’s fun and chaotic spirit, with a rhythm and drum playing that brings life to the stunning harmonic chord work.
Doris was formed in London blending shoegaze and dream pop influences in their style. The band features Romy Jo on vocals, Andrew Lancaster on guitars, and Jerry Lane on keyboards. Storm Doris is their debut record which was recorded in an old army bunker in the Cotswolds by producer Hugh Fielding. The album features Joseph Johns on bass and Jonny Maiden on drums. The band aims to blend fun and chaos something they are incredibly great at.
The album’s first track, “Down,” starts with a catchy post-punk style riff, followed by a fast rhythm and drums that perfectly complement the upbeat melody. “Old Bones,” on the other hand, has beautiful chords and vocals that create an ethereal sound. The song’s clean reverbed guitars create an ambient aura that feels magical and awe-inspiring.
“Supernatural Sex Dream” is an upbeat indie rock song that conveys joy and life, while “Cult” is a fast but beautiful number with its melody and harmony. “Lonely Rose,” a slow indie rock ballad, offers a nice change of pace from the album’s more energetic tracks. One of the standout tracks on the album is “Spy Girl,” with its shining powerful, and dreamy chorus and sound. The song’s texturally rich arrangements create an aura that’s both soothing and uplifting. “Under the Sun” brings the album to a close with its driving rhythm and catchy melody. The song’s upbeat vibe perfectly captures the feeling of basking in the warmth of the sun.
The music has a high-energy, guitar-driven sound with a strong emphasis on catchy hooks and melodic riffs. There is a sense of urgency and immediacy to their sound, with a focus on tight rhythms and infectious choruses. I also find a brooding element to the music, with atmospheric guitar work and introspective lyrics. This is music that is both raw and polished, with a mix of upbeat rockers and introspective ballads.
Storm Doris is a stunning debut LP from Doris that showcases the band’s unique blend of alternative and indie rock. The album’s nocturnal vibes and stunning harmonic chord work will transport you to another world. Whether you’re a fan of ambient indie rock or just appreciate good music, Storm Doris is an album you won’t want to miss.
