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. The Dø is part of only a recent phenomenon of French pop bands choosing not to sing in French.
