Paris electro-pop duo the Dø tamper with upbeat synths and catchy, irresistible choruses, and their video for “Trustful Hands” is in keeping with the same kind of mindful energy. Shot in Japan, the video acts like a performance art piece of sorts, with members Olivia Merilahti and Dan Levy dancing and lying on the ground in the middle of a crowded Tokyo city center, welcoming the gawks of passers-by. The Dø do French indie in the same vein of acts like Superbus and Phoenix, and “Trustful Hands” is just all-around delightful. The clips are interchanged and superimposed by some French New Wave-ish visuals, and there’s even a brief snippet of Merilahti performing a pretty awesome rendition of Mariah Carey’s “Hero” on karaoke. “Trustful Hands” is pulled from the Dø’s third LP Shake Shook Shaken.
