Doe Paoro Breaks Her "Cage Of Habits" With Sultry New Song + Video

Today, Doe Paoro has released a sultry new song and video “Cage Of Habits,” the latest taste from her forthcoming album ‘Soft Power, out 10/19 on ANTI- Records.

Co-written by Doe (nee Sonia Kreitzer) and Wynne Bennett of Twin Shadow, "Cage of Habits" is her most confident plunge into soul-inspired pop to date, packed with brassy instrumentation, infectious rhythms and ecstatic gospel harmonies.

To accompany the track, Doe Paoro has released a gritty video directed by Austin Roa (Jade Bird, Hippo Campus) and shot in Dallas, TX. "This song feels so raw to me and I wanted to embrace that by not relying on anything outside of myself to convey the gravity of it, which is why it’s so minimal,” says Doe. “The alone-ness of it is intended to reflect the solo nature of overcoming our own loops."

“A short phrase or one line can inspire an entire song because of the conviction that the specific phrase is something that needs to exist in the world,” she says. “In this case, it is the title of the song, and it was a total fluke: I was corresponding with a friend in Berlin, whose first language was German, and asked him how he was doing and he wrote something along the lines of ‘Oh, everything is too much the same, the usual parties and my cage of habits.’”

Aided GRAMMY-winning producer Jimmy Hogarth (Amy Winehouse, Sia, Paolo Nutini), 'Soft Power' is a significant and soulful departure for Doe Paoro - recorded live to tape in a London studio with a top-shelf cast of musicians who have recorded with the likes of Adele and Brian Eno. The album bears a raw true-to-self vitality through an indelible batch of songs all written or co-written by Kreitzer. Stereogum said the new songs "recall the rosy-tinted sound of ‘60s girl groups like the Shirelles," declaring, "if you like Amy Winehouse, you’re probably going to love this."

Doe Paoro has toured with the likes of Sylvan Esso and Son Little and will hit the road for a headlining tour in support of 'Soft Power' this fall. Full tour routing below.
