MAY 2017

TIME Magazine: “…musical collective out of San Diego that calls itself Doctrine has made its debut with a bang on ‘Play,’ a sharply orchestrated piece of futuristic pop. An experiment in manipulation of choir voices, ‘Play’ is a minimalist but textured track that takes its cues from classical choral music and finds power in floating, restrained layers and precise electronic production. From the first listen, it hits just the right chord.
