Press Release

The fusing of Dorcha’s own unique concoction of experimental pop-noise with the offerings of the infamous Invada (owned by Geoff Barrow of Portishead/Beak) and its delicious collection of old school synths and analogue effects has born a beast of sound in the shape of the new album - Honey Badger. Not only this, the band have embarked on a multi-dimensional collaboration with a host of visual artists to curate a feature-length film which will be presented around the full vinyl and digital release on Box Records on November 6th. The album sees the journey of an introverted brain being churned through a psychedelic party and the constant battle between the bitter-sweet Jekyll & Hyde creature lurking within; the Honey Badger. It is a voyage into the unknown, an attempt at losing yourself in order to find yourself. The lyrical beginning sets up the question, ‘I’ve been thinking about what to come as?’ as we pre-empt being thrown into the social maelstrom with anxious anticipation. Who will you find? Who will you be? As we navigate ‘Honey Badger’, we go in search of resonators; personalities we can connect with, we encounter Lizards, Bruisers, Horses, beguiling tales of prophetic nature and total and utter nonsense. Reflecting Dorcha’s own nature as a group of unusual introverts with an aversion to sitting still, the tumultuous turns of the album represent the breadth of the human condition as our worlds unpredictably collide on macro and micro levels. Psychedelic prog beginnings give way to a synth-disco-party at the centre, with momentary dips into darker grunge, and the final third floating into an ethereal fantasia of synths and strings with the likes of ‘Hose’ and ‘Horses’. And mind you don’t miss the dark under-current of a presence named ‘Le Loyon’. Wherever you’re drawn to within the 5D world of the Honey Badger, who’s ‘sharp teeth glisten’, the band sincerely hopes you don’t fall into the jaws, and instead manage to shed some skin, a little light, and perhaps even find what you’re looking for.
