One of our picks for new music for 2012, Doe Paoro is a chick singer/songwriter out of Brooklyn (surprise) that we've been following especially thanks to our new Curator, KashfiFahim. (Interested in becoming a Curator...you can do that right here! http://www.bitcandy.com/curator/how-it-works)
Somewhere between a less squeaky Grimes and hmm...an Ellie Goulding in development is Doe Paoro. And admittedly this might be a shorter blog post than normal because there's a bit of mystery around this artist. Her facebook describes her music as mythic and feral wailing (agreed)...and her biography on line is simply this:
DOE PAORO IS DEAD, LONG LIVE DOE PAORO
Maybe a nod to Frenchy fav, Soko who I remember recently went through a "dead" phase before music brought her back to life...or this is a reference to some other poetic manuscript or cultural meaning that I am just not privy to.
Either way...we like Doe Paoro alive and look forward to more music.
Check out our 3 favorite jams here:
Dao Paoro - Born Slow (Kokyo Remix)
Dao Paoro - Can't Leave You
(a little bit of that feral wailing at the end...um maybe too much but still...)
