Doe have released their new album today, Grow Into It, stream the whole effort in full below.
Doe have signed to renowned indie labels Big Scary Monsters and Topshelf Records to release Grow into It, album produced by Matthew Johnson (Hookworms, Suburban Home Studio).
Nicola Leel singer and guitarist explains Doe’s new album: “Grow into It is an album about the ageing process and growth”, she continues; “Lyrically, I wanted to write an album about getting older that was an antithesis of the overdone trope of male bands singing about rejecting adulthood and wanting to stay young and get wasted with their friends forever. Instead, Grow into It is about finding light and freedom in age and finding autonomy in death.”
“Vivid body imagery is a recurring lyrical theme, not only to evoke ideas of physical change / deterioration, but as a metaphor for the development and deterioration of personal relationships as you grow and gain perspective. The subject matter across the songs ranges from deciding you’re not going to accommodate others at your own personal expense anymore (Labour like I Do, Team Spirit), to realising your favourite author is a bit shit at writing women (Even Fiction)”.
