French/Finnish duo The Dø – aka Olivia Merilahti and Dan Levy. New album 'Both Ways Open Jaws' out now.
After spending two years honing their craft, the band released debut album 'A Mouthful' in 2008, which saw them land the prized no.1 album spot in France.
Hot on the heels of this celebrated release, French born, half-Finnish Olivia and French born Dan embarked on an international tour, filling venues in cities from LA to Istanbul, Australia to Paris and gaining an impenetrable cult following in the process. Shortly after, they holed up alone in their Paris studio and began work on second album, 'Both Ways Open Jaws', which is to be released in the UK on November 14th.
Inspiration for this album was pooled from an array of disparate sources; minimalist trailblazer Steve Reich, The Dead Weather and surrealist Japanese cinema all had a profound effect on the record's genesis and long, contemplative walks in the woods helped the pair to gain clarity and perspective.
