Bio

Equally inspired by the classic sounds of The Beatles and Sex Pistols to the amphetamine fueled groove of Manchester bands The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays, Dopamine are a 5-piece alternative rock band hailing from Brisbane, Australia. The group, comprised of frontman Finley Miller, bass guitarist Ruby Lee, rhythm guitarist Finn ‘Diggsy’ Diggles, lead guitarist Luke Gregory and drummer Oliver Whitaker, have been making waves in the industry - performing their ecstatic live shows to a repeat offender fan-base.

Since the release of their first single ‘Ordinary People’, the group have set themselves up as one of the city's most exciting names in rich indie-rock. By combining catchy hooks and earworming rhythms with subtleties of punk and Britpop, the quintet have put themselves in a unique lane amongst a quickly-saturating music scene. This resulted in the band moving on to support The Delta Riggs and Last Dinosaurs amongst sold-out shows of their own, positioning themselves as local favourites on the live music circuit. Dopamine’s set brings an electrifying stage presence to light, along with a remarkable setlist to back it up; the group has been described as “Brisbane’s next shining young guitar group” (GRAINZINE) and a “good reminder of how fun a solid guitar-driven band can be” (LIVEWIRE). With the release of their second single ‘Decide’ in 2019, Dopamine proves that they are a force to be reckoned with that have no intention of slowing down.

The first few bars gave me some Evermore vibes, and there's some solid DMA's in there too. The harmonies throughout are so good, and the guitar really drives the song forward. I dig it!

This is a neat little straight shooter with a mean solo in the tail
