Doe // New Single, "Labour like I Do"

Topshelf Records and Big Scary Monsters recently announced the signing of London indie rock trio Doe, who will be releasing their second album, Grow into It, on September 28, 2018. Today we're excited to share the upcoming record's second single, "Labour like I Do," with a premiere on NPR.

"'Labour like I Do' is one of those songs that came flowing out like a stream of consciousness," says singer and guitarist Nicola Leel. "For that reason it’s lyrically one of the more straight up songs on the record, but sometimes it’s cool when you blurt out a bunch of words to music and realise you’ve used songwriting as a form of accidental therapy."

Not only is "Labour like I Do" accidentally therapeutic, but it's also infectiously fun and catchy. On this single, Doe experimented a bit beyond their general formula, deftly incorporating synth and slide guitar to accentuate their crafty indie rock hooks that feature clever, polyphonous vocal work. The catchy hooks trade off dynamically before exploding into an anthemic climax that shows a focused band with an ear for powerfully authentic songwriting.

Check out the video, directed by Andrew Northrop, below.
