Dharma Police is a side-project of ex-Hamiltonian, now Auckland based, Dan Satherley’s Anecdata. The project focusses on releasing synthpop songs with lyrics primarily relating to the TV show ‘Lost’. The name Dharma Police was derived from the 'Dharma Initiative', a fictional research project featured in the television series, and as it rhymes with Radiohead's 'Karma Police'.
He released the first track from this musical venture in January 2011. In 2012, the first album by the project, It's all Downhill from Here, was released. This has been followed by the Question Mark album (also 2012), The Glass Eye EP (2015), and the 2017 album It Only Ends Once.
