The Dø are a French meets Finnish duo who released their debut LP, A Mouthful on Six Degrees Records earlier this month, which prompted the infamous Pitchfork to state the album “is as ambitious and fun as any coming-out party in recent memory.” After giving it a listen, I can attest that it is pretty damn fun. “At Last” is an easy favorite with over-pronounced words sung in a sexy foreign accent and a laid-back, calm guitar strum that dares you not to fall in love.
The video for “At Last” conveys this properly. Filmed in London, Berlin and Paris, and produced by Kid AM, the video has that live feel while meshing with the cool of your standard hype band. After all, The Dø can be considered somewhat of a hype band themselves. Here’s some hype while we’re at it: A Mouthful warrants your attention. Period.
