Dorena is a Swedish post-rock band formed in 2007 by 5 guys spread around the city of Gothenburg. The members have played together in various constellations since they were in middle class. Before starting Dorena in the fall of 2007, four of the five members were in a screamo band. When the singer decided to leave, Kim started to play guitar and Simon took over the bass.
Holofon is Dorena's Debut. They sound great. They are not bringing something new to post rock, but they tickle great the guitars. They are from Sweden and I think their energy is unique. Sometimes they present screamo moods and desires and other times they sound like Sigur Ros and Hammock or maybe more chill out artists. Interesting music and well constructed melodic compositions. Noise rock mixed with lovely ambient parts.
