Doe Paoro Offers "Hypotheticals"

Doe Paoro is premiering another new song from her highly anticipated album After which arrives this September 25th on Anti-.

The track, streaming courtesy of Flaunt Magazine, is entitled “Hypotheticals” and inventively merges elements of gospel and electronica to highlight Paoro’s powerful and evocative voice.

In the previous weeks, the buzz has continued to grow around Paoro’s forthcoming album After. Vice’s Noisey wrote of her track The Wind, “with its hypnotic piano line, muted beats, and effects that sound like the devil's scratching at your door, "The Wind" makes for a meditative, haunting piece of music,” while site The Line of Best Fit compared her song “Nostalgia,” co-written with Peter Morén of Peter Bjorn & John, to Kurt Vonnegut’s time merging masterwork Slaughterhouse-Five. A recent RAC remix of “Nostalgia” has been greeted with an overwelmingly positive response.

For her 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. “I’m used to just working with a piano,” says Paoro, “but with this album, we built an entire world with the sonics alone.”

Paoro will be touring North America next month with Little May and with acclaimed Louisiana band Givers starting this November.
