French music business shows a long tradition of pop duos. Serge Gainsbourg’s multiple duos, mainly with actresses Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin, are the first examples at hands, that of a male musical mastermind, often multi-instrumentist, and a sexy doll of a singer. Stone et Charden could be another example, more or less. That formula really exploded during the eighties, first with Elli et Jacno then later with the excellent Les Rita Mitsouko and the rather underestimated Niagara, among others. In the later years, male/male duos got the upper hand with world famous Daft Punk and Air, and to a lesser extend AaRON. The Dø looks like a band, the ‘The’ part in the name offers that illusion, but they are a duo of French multi-instrumentist and mastermind Dan Levy and Finnish cute looking singer Olivia Bouyssou Merilahti : D for Dan, ø for Olivia, it’s that simple.
Do is also the alpha and the omega of the musical scale. There is nothing much more to tell about this except that it sounds good.
