The Dø Tour Dates: Dazzling Paris-based duo arrives in the U.S. soon!
French/Finnish indie pop duo The Dø announce North American tour dates in support of their critically acclaimed album Both Ways Open Jaws. The UK’s Uncut gave the album four stars and shared the following praise… “Paris based pair dazzle with deluxe Europop manifesto…a classy musical ancestry including Bjork, Fever Ray and The Cardigans.”
Pitchfork‘s comments? “Genre-hopscotching musicality … Both Ways Open Jaws has teeth like a shark.”
Robin Hilton from NPR’s All Songs Considered remarked, “My favorite new discovery of the year… an epic listen: beautiful but gritty, unpredictable, unsettling and full of mystery.”

French multi-instrumentalist Dan Levy and Finnish vocalist Olivia Merilahti met in 2005 while recording the soundtrack to a French movie and started writing songs together on the side. This side project took center stage when A Mouthful (the band’s first release) garnered praise from the likes of Pitchfork, and the band went on to play festivals and tour worldwide. Most recently, the band was the winner of the “Up & Comer” Best New Artist award for the first annual American Association of Independent Music. This award is presented by eMusic and celebrates the next independent label superstar artist.
