The do – Both Ways Open Jaws

6 04 2011

They rocked the music planet 3 years ago with their first album “A Mouthful”. You don’t remember them? Come on, I’m sure you still have their hit “On my shoulders” somewhere in your head. Who am I talking about? The do of course!

The time for a second album album and “Both Ways Open Jaws” was released on March 17th. Oh, you know like me that a second album is certainly the most important in a band career, especially for a band dubbed by critics for their first album. However, it seems that the Do is able to outperform: with “Both Ways Open Jaws”, we (still) have a nugget!

The duo, composed of Olivia Merilahti and Dan Levy, opens this record with the wonderful “Dust it off”, on which you can easily fall in love with Olivia’s voice. But I won’t forget Dan: he’s giving this album his taste with his mysterious and deep compositions that make you think of a movie soundtrack… Maybe because Dan also works for the cinema and has composed plenty of songs for different directors.

The fan from the 1st album would maybe say that the band has released a more pop album, perhaps more easy to listen to. To support the band effort, I would say that this will help new listeners to discover this magic duo.

Music, as pictures, speaks better that words. So I will stop here and let you enjoy this piece of jewelry.

Listen here.
