Three years after releasing their seminal debut EP Coalition, which was championed by BBC 1Xtra, MTV, BET and Spotify among others, and birthed breakthrough singles such as “Skyline” and “Soldier”, London-bred alternative R&B duo Dora Martin are back, and are proud to announce their long-awaited and highly anticipated sophomore EP Him, Her, Them, to be released on October 10, 2016.
The first offering from the forthcoming EP is lead single “Another Life” and its accompanying music video. Written by Dora Martin, and produced by SOS (Sons of Sonix), who have previously worked with the likes of Wretch 32, Stormzy and Tinie Tempah, “Another Life” is exactly what we love about Dora Martin – relatable stories, impeccable vocals, lush harmonies and songwriting excellence.
Speaking about the inspiration behind “Another Life”, Dora Martin confess that, “the concept was inspired by our friendship of over 15 years, and we believe this subject matter is relatable from both a male and female perspective. People who form close friendships are often initially attracted to each other, but it’s often a taboo subject that isn’t really talked about, in fear of spoiling a healthy relationship”.
Made up of two already thriving solo musicians Cherri Voncelle and Jermain Riley, Dora Martin is not your typical R&B duo. Having both experienced the roller coaster of the music industry – from major record deals to independent releases and everything in between – Voncelle and Riley have put their creative minds together, to birth something special, and free from any boundaries or limitations.
Their new EP Him, Her, Them, sees Dora Martin collaborating once again with Truth, who produced their debut single “Skyline”, as well as producers PRGRSHN (Angel, WSTRN, Rukhsana Merrise), and SOS (Wretch 32, Ariana Grande, Stormzy) who produced “Another Life”, with the duo promising a return to their signature innovative sound in the face of today’s music climate.
