What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Just DØ It



While they’re certainly rough around the edges, I’m not sure the songs are really in the singer’s key, and her personal style sometimes takes weird turns, the French/Finnish duo known as The DØ (which looks to me like it should be pronounced this way) undeniably has some special something. They’ve been making music together since 2005, when they met while recording music for the French film, Empire of the Wolves. With songs written and played by Dan Levy and sung by the oddly-hypnotic Olivia Merilahtia, the pair has been a staple of the French indie pop scene pretty much since they met.

They aren’t my usual cup of tea, but I cannot stop listening, and now their skillful hooks are stuck in my head. Why does French pop always do this to me?

You can follow the band on their website, on their YouTube channel, and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

  1. Well this was quite interesting. I like the music, but I can’t quite get over the fact that she seems to be singing in the wrong key (which you noticed as well). Maybe it’s an artistic choice since it’s consistently wrong. It’s certainly unique! 😉

  3. Yes, interesting. Her voice has a… haunting quality? Melancholy? Mind you, I think that of any song in a minor key… 😉
    The second (jet engines in the bg) – still haunting yet more ebullient. I can’t speak to the lyrics by the way, since as per my usual hearing problem I can’t really make out too much.
    And as for the rest, more and more I noticed an oriental feeling in the songs.
    Overall, not my favourite music, but very inventive videos and a very attractive couple I must say!
