The Dø: “Both Ways Open Jaws”
Pronounced like the “do-re-mi” kind of “do” [dough], this duo is from Paris and Helsinki, respectively. Both Ways Open Jaws is the sophomore release from the pair, and a formidable album. I enjoyed the clever instrumentation and seemingly simple song structures, which complement the lucid yet sensual vocals of Olivia Bouyssou Merilahti nicely. It’s melodic, often times fun, and a little different.
