Curating shows for the rowdy, weird & experimental in Salford since 2008
Dorcha is a 5 piece Birmingham band of synths, strings, electronics and heavy beats, led by composer - Anna Palmer. Since launching their first full-length album 'Black Streams' in 2015, the band’s genre-defying sound has been praised by BBC 6 Music’s Stuart Maconie on his Freak Zone and they’ve shared line-ups with the likes of Deerhoof, East India Youth and Dream Wife. Drawing from an eclectic array of influences and musical backgrounds, Dorcha is a continuing exploration through alternative songwriting. Through curating their own multidisciplinary events with artistic collaborators, the band has produced an enigmatic live show accompanied by visuals which continues to excite and bewilder diverse audiences. The band have recently released a new EP entitled ‘ISM’ which adventures further into the depths of left-field electronica whilst still maintaining refined pop sensibilities.
