The Do's new single, Gonna Be Sick! was released on January 16th, 2012 and is taken from the duo's second album, Both Ways Open Jaws, which was released in November 2011, through Village Green. The Do will be touring Europe throughout April and May 2012, including one show at The Garage in London.
The video for Gonna Be Sick! sees lead singer Olivia setting out to sea on a boat. While sailing, however, she gets caught up in a storm, which soon turns into a tornado.
Olivia and multi-instrumentalist Dan met in 2005 while composing the score for French film Empire of the Wolves. In 2008, they released debut album A Mouthful, which topped the charts in France. This marked the first time an English speaking French act reached number one in that country.
Both Ways Open Jaws was self-produced. Promotional single, Slippery Slope, was released in August 2011 as a free download, while lead single, Too Insistent, was released in October 2011. Expect to hear a lot more from The Do as 2012 progresses.
