Dora Lachaise

Recently found wandering through Glasgow’s Victorian cemeteries, Dora Lachaise produces dark and otherworldly music.

Her fascination with UFO conspiracy theories and Nick Cave’s murder duets inspired Weather Balloons, her joint new EP with Jonni Slater.

“It’s audacious, bold and beautiful. The lyrics are poetic, the interplay between the vocalists, so much to love here.”
– Eclectic Picks, Fresh on the Net

a truly talented artist with touches of Kate Bush … we are gripped from the start.
