Dorcha is a 5 piece Birmingham band of synths, strings, electronics and heavy beats, led by composer – Anna Palmer. Drawing from an eclectic array of influences and musical backgrounds, Dorcha is a continuing exploration through alternative songwriting. From classical to punk, trashy pop to psychedelic math-rock with some swooping electronica thrown in between; the band career through intensely dark synth-laden gristle to moments of gentile and delicately-stringed reverie. 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.
