Bio

Majora is a progressive/post-rock, instrumental group formed in 2014 from Newcastle, Australia.

In 2015, Majora released the highly acclaimed EP ‘Iridescent’. The debut EP received exceptional reviews from My Indie Australia, Metal Obsession and praise from many presenters and producers at Triple J, Including music director Richard Kingsmill, Dom Alessio and Zan Rowe.
Triple J Unearthed presenter Lachie Macara named Majora as "One of my favourite discoveries of 2015" and inclusion for his ’Top 10 Unearthed finds of 2015’.

Following on from the ‘Tidal Tour’ in 2016, Majora have performed with Cog, Protest the Hero, The Contortionist, Twelve Foot Ninja, sleepmakeswaves, Tangled Thoughts of Leaving and Closure in Moscow among others.

Majora has come back in 2017 with the release of the sophomore EP ‘Aphotic’.
Co-produced and engineered by Dax Liniere and Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus), Aphotic has been described to by Rod Whitfield at The Music as “Thoroughly Kaleidoscopic post rock that ebbs and flows like a king tide” and Alasdair Belling at Kill Your Stereo concluding that on Aphotic “Majora can firmly place themselves with a wonderful showcase of both quality song writing and creative intuition”.

Majora have been on the road throughout October and November on the ‘Aphotic Tour’, co-headlining with Osaka Punch in support of the Aphotic EP and the official music video for the lead single ‘Aphotic’, filmed and directed by Tim Grove.

The Aphotic EP is now available at the official Majora Bandcamp, iTunes and streaming platforms Spotify and Apple Music.

Heard Dom spin this last night and I had to look y'all up! What a bloody journey hey, so many epic transitions, so much atmosphere. I love it. Looking forward to the EP.

Proof you should never underestimate the power of delayed guitar, a technical drummer, and a well-placed crushing crescendo or two. In the right hands, it can make for some devastating music and Majora's got some pretty skilled hands it sounds like.
