Doctrine is a synth-pop/new wave group made up of Douglas Donovan and Holden Brahms. Their first release, Leavers’ Do, is a five track throwback synth and bass laden EP that is fairly ambient and absent of focused vocals. The first track, You and Your Dad Issues (love this title), is part New Order and part XX for a great sound. Although great as an instrumental and super captivating, for some reason I long for vocals on You and Your Dad Issues.
Cause they’re rad, you can download Leavers’ Do directly from their bandcamp.
Also, they do have a vocal mix of You and Your Dad Issues with Beko Digital Singles so that puts my previous longing for vocals on that track to rest.
