Taking their name from a children’s fantasy novel, Doran
is a four-person freak folk collective hailing from rural
Virginia, New York, and the Pacific Northwest. Together,
singer and banjo-player Elizabeth Laprelle (Anna &
Elizabeth), multi-media performance artists and musicians
Channing Showalter and Annie Schermer (West Of
Roan), and ethnomusicologist and multi-instrumentalist
Brian Dolphin draw from their respective work in story,
song, archetype and image, and advance it into an untapped
experimental terrain that is newly raw, wintry, moody, and
tender. The result is an intimately collaborative record
of rich and often eerie modal harmonies, supported by
sparse acoustic arrangements, and grounded by the
group’s strong background in traditional Appalachian
ballad singing, Eastern European choral music, Celtic
folklore, and improvisation. Songs ranging from sorrowful
to playful twine together in a hauntingly beautiful cohesive
album one could imagine hearing on the soundtrack of the
next A24 folk horror film. Doran’s layered, searching debut
reaches into the spaces between self and other, past and
future, inner landscape and outer, and returns with a new
language to describe the journey.
