FILE UNDER: Indie / Electronic

LABEL: / Get Døwn!

INFO: The Dø is a French rock duo formed by musician and soundtrack composer Dan Levy and French/Finnish singer Olivia Merilahti.

They met while recording the music for the film Empire of the Wolves, and continued to collaborate for the films The Passenger andCamping Sauvage.

Their early songs include "At Last!", "The Bridge is Broken", "Playground Hustle" and "On My Shoulders", the latter of which has been used in television commercials for Oxford Stationery. All feature on their debut album A Mouthful, released on 14 January 2008. The Dø is known to incorporate a great range of instruments in their songs, as well as being a duet completing each other member, Merilahti bringing the melody, and Levy the symphonic or jazzy structure. Most of the lyrics are written in English, the rest being in Finnish.[1] The Dø is part of only a recent phenomenon of French pop bands choosing not to sing in French[2].
