They’ve also shared new single, “Team Spirit”, taken from their second album Grow into It, out now on Big Scary Monsters. Guitarist/vocalist Nicola Leel says of the song:

“Team Spirit is about enthusiastically allowing your own needs and desires to take a back seat in the pursuit of pleasing those around you. Or more – realising you did that as a teenager but you’re not going to do it now. I think a lot of girls’ formative years are spent being moulded in a certain way to seem attractive and inoffensive. This song is a masked celebration of sheddi

ng those layers of conditioning and emerging as your own adult person, like a beautiful angry onion.

“Jake has a knack for writing really weird riffs with really catchy melodies, he brought the initial idea to practice and it naturally progressed into a big pop song then we added a bit that (I hope) sounds like The Cars in the middle. There’s something cathartic about singing lyrics that sound positive but are actually not at all positive against the backdrop of a big pop song.”


Praise for Grow into It, out now on Big Scary Monsters:
“Grow Into It sees subtle changes to the band’s palette; the riffs are catchier, the heavy parts even more crushing, and the drum parts wonderfully intricate… Grow Into It sees Doe growing up gracefully.” – DIY, ⅘

“Stepping beyond teenage angst and fleeting youth, London-based indie heroes, Doe, are still delivering an arsenal of harmony-filled crowd-pleasers with their sophomore album, Grow Into It.” – The Line of Best Fit

“An accomplished and exciting record” – Record Collector, 4/5

4/5 – Dork

“Lacing every call to arms with unwavering belief .. they’re leading the charge, breaking down walls and adventuring… every step up, out and forward is sure of itself” – Upset, 4/5
