I don’t know what kind of “doctrine” this mysterious new collective from Los Angeles is planning to teach us, but whatever it is, sign me up, I’m already a true believer! One “play” of Doctrine’s debut single left me with my jaw wide open in disbelief. The project involving a chorale ensemble named SACRA/PROFANA is described as a hybrid between choral music and indie pop. Their first song Play is a polyphonic masterpiece, a multi-layered electro hymnal that evokes the baroque artistry of San Fermin, Dirty Projectors, and Son Lux. It comes accompanied by a visual piece which you can watch below. Those of you in Southern California have the lucky opportunity to catch this enigmatic collective live when they play Gallery 1988 (West) on Saturday. Purchase tickets, here. My curiosity has been piqued sky high, and I’ll be awaiting any reports of how the show goes as well as more innovative music from Doctrine.
