The band’s visuals, theme and chosen colourway reminded me of The White Stripes, made quirkier by their Parisian/Scandinavian touch.
Incorporating electronic synths, drum pads and Pop-hit melodies, their music is reminiscent of Chvrches, La Roux and Purity Ring. Beginning with a short medley, quieter keys soon built into a dynamic drum defined instrumental.
The Dø’s cover of Rae Sremmurd’s ‘No Type’ proved the surprise of the evening. Retaining the heavy beat you would expect, a slow tempo, hard trap infused beat, and Merilahti’s voice presented a unique revamp of the R&B classic.
‘Lick My Wounds’ was a big favourite amongst the crowd, with everyone jumping and singing along to its lyrics.
As the toy-sounding synth and crashing cymbals bore witness to Merilahti’s vocals, which built upwards layer after layer.
Pausing after this song, she donned a typical cockney accent to shout “Hello London” as we hit the hour mark.
After such an energetic night, I can safely say The Dø lived up to their exciting appearance; their entire set was absolutely on point
Check out their new Deluxe Edition of their album ‘Shake Shook Shaken’, which shot up the charts and got to number one in the digital French chart.
