Doe Paoro has premiered a new video for her new single “Voice”. From Paoro: “I learned throughout a decade of meditative practice. In fact, the track is her attempt at rendering a sort of universal voice that can only be heard in utter silence.”
The new video was directed by Mitch Dequilettes and a surreal affair culminating in a hypnotic and eerie dance sequence. Paoro says of the video, ““I see the last dance sequence as inspired by “The Craft” and the whole video is a commentary on seeking an exorcism from this apocalyptic world where we have become addicted to looking for light outside of ourselves.”
On her Anti- debut album After, Paoro worked with producers Sean Carey (drummer / supporting vocalist for Bon Iver) and BJ Burton (The Tallest Man on Earth, Sylvan Esso, and others) to even further deepen her musical repertoire, creating a mesmerizing hybrid of R&B, synthpop, and indie-leaning electro rooted in an earthy minimalism, drawing from influences ranging from Carole King to Portishead, Aretha Franklin and beyond. The album was recorded at April Base, a Wisconsin ranch house that Vernon had converted into a studio with songs co written with number of songwriters including Sterling Fox, Peter Morén (Peter Bjorn and John), Max Hershenow (MS MR), and Adam Rhodes.
