Dop “The Lighthouse”
- Words: Kate Simko
- Label: Orac
Breaking down musical boxes, Dop’s quirky music videos and leftfield sound have a fresh, arty weirdness to them; they’re not copying the fads. The French trio’s relentless drums change subtly over time as vocals echo, eerie harmonies shift through space, and keyboards and horn parts showcase their sense for composition. Something like an Afro-Latin tribal recording gone mental–you gotta check this for yourself.
