Orphica was created in 2015 in Austin, TX by Devin Keane, a biotechnology student at Austin Community College. Originally, live shows featured him using looping, a mixer, and a keytar. From 2015 - 2017, Orphica did several performances as a small band.
Originally inspired by chiptune music, Orphica is a hybrid of post-rock and electronic music. It features guitar and synth seasoned with some chunky 8-bit sounds and other electronic effects.
