It’s been but a couple days since a mysterious collective from California named Doctrine emerged from the shadows with their experimental chorale/chamber pop debut, Play. As we expected, Play has been making an indelible impression in the indie scene. Instead of riding out the waves of their success, Doctrine has been kind enough to swiftly gift us a new tune. Who Can Say is just as brilliant an offering. Once again, we’re entranced by Doctrine’s polyphonic intricacy and avant-garde consistency. Indietronica, orchestral pop, and art pop come together for a magical ride that combines the baroque constitution of San Fermin and Dirty Projectors with the whimsical kick of Sylvan Esso. This second song leaves no doubt that this collective, which involves San Diego chorale ensemble SACRA/PROFANA, is one of the most fascinating new arrivals this month. Re-visit debut single Play, here.

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.
