Douseart rock, indie rockhttp://douseband.bandcamp.comwww.facebook.com/dousebandDouse is an art rock project from New Westminster, BC.

Its three members share diverse influences, ranging from progressive and post-punk, to world music, to its folk roots. The result is a balance between violence and softness; sharp guitars push against orchestral ambiance and unconventional percussion.dousehq@gmail.comAA
