The song which was penned by Jamie Mulrooney will be the lead track on their debut EP which will be officially released in January 2016.

"Great vocals and some beautiful harmonies" - Christy Moore
The song was also given high praise when previewed by The Irish Times on 12/06/2015.

Doppler is a collection of sounds and ideas brought to life together by two friends who write about things that have influenced their own and each others lives. Like new ideas their sound is difficult to put into words and their songs require attention as every track takes on a different meaning and subject. Moving melodies, tight harmonies, muffled moody guitars and crisp honest vocals wrapped around simple folk chord progressions.
Dopplers latest single release "Railroad" is available, along with several other tracks, for free download through their SoundCloud page where they have developed a following of over 2500 regular listeners and well over 40,000 plays.
Railroad was voted "Song of the Week" on In Colour on RTE's 2XM with Darren Cleary-8/3/15

8/10- U & I Magazine- March 15'.
"I am a lover of the lyric being reflected in the vocal delivery and the music itself, and ‘Railroad’ ticks all those boxes for me. There are hooks in the song but they are not obvious or cheesy. The tense atmosphere on a hungover Sunday after a steamy, drunken Saturday night comes through in waves. A Doppler effect, if you will."- Al Gilmore- Chordblossom 7/5/15
"Railroad a laid back almost languid, retro groove that meanders much like the Railroad the title describes. With hints of Neil Young it tells of a love that never seems like it could work, it’s the wrong time, wrong place and it’s time to move on. Despite being drenched with regret and melancholy you still emerge from a dark tunnel with a sense of optimism and the refrain “I’ll go where you go” ringing in your ears." Featured single of the week- First Sing of Love on RCM
