Douse is an art rock project from New Westminster, BC. Since their formation 4 years ago, Douse has evolved into a progressive and dark collective, yet still feels lush and somehow natural.
After putting out a handful of songs and completing their cross-Canada tour in 2015 under the name Alea Rae, the band reinvented itself and went into the studio with Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Yukon Blonde) the following year. Their debut record, The Light in You Has Left, was released October 1st, 2016, and was celebrated with a release show that saw them sharing the stage with Royal Canoe. Since then, the record has appeared on multiple “best of 2016” lists including Beatroute BC’s, and the band was highlighted in The Georgia Straight’s “Top 5 Bands To Watch in 2017” article.
