Reconnect: The Dø

The Dø

I first heard about this French/Finnish duo when I heard the most bizarre, messed up and amazing track in 2010- Queen. Dot. Kong. It’s proved impossible to replicate live, I’d love to see it but any attempt has fallen short it’s just a beautiful nightmare of a track.

Contrast that with At Last, a gorgeous ballad that could have been released in the 70s it sounds so out of this era.

The marvellous reality we are faced with is verdant twee mixed with off key deliberate experimentation. It makes for such a unique listen, rarely will you find a band as brave as this.

They’ve just released their third album Shake, Shook, Shaken and below is the representative lead track Despair, Hangover & Ecstasy.
