Inspired by the divine feminine, gothic and antique imagery, dark fantasy and the fecundity of nature, Dol Ikara brings a timely theme to this day and age of gentle strength. Created by singer-songwriter Claire Roddy, the music paints a soundscape infused with silvery lilts and poetic ambiguities. These same poetic sensibilities brought about the moniker Dol Ikara – a neologism – something phonetically beautiful to serve as a blank canvas without any preconceived notions or associations. Most recently, “Stone Towers” from EP Obsidian Ritual has been featured on season 6 of the BBC / Netflix series Peaky Blinders. Various musical influences include Mazzy Star, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Broadcast, Cocteau Twins, Stevie Nicks, Cranes, PJ Harvey, and Kate Bush.
