The Dø (pronounced ‘dough’) are a kooky French/Finnish duo. Having topped the charts in France they are setting out to conquer the rest of the world. They’ve been described in France as “PJ Harvey on the moon” which paints a slightly weird, but accurate, picture.
Latest single At Last is a slice of folk-tinged pop. Olivia Merlahti supplies vocals reminiscent of the Cardigans’ Nina Persson. She sings ‘at last, I found what I was dreaming of’ and Dan Levy’s soothing folk-like guitar harmonises with her vocals as it transcends into a Sunday afternoon chill-out song.
Not The Dø at their finest, At Last can get a little repetitive at times. Nevertheless, it’s still an enjoyable easy listen.
