1. Happy Soldier
2. West Coast
The 4 school pals from Toulouse in south west France have now played most of France’s top festivals and have gigged alongside Franz Ferdinand, Babyshambles, Stereophonics, Siouxsie (on the 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower….) to mention but a few. They have headlined more than a 100 gigs around France, including 2 packed out performances in Paris.
The band’s debut album (CD, vinyl, digital) was released in France, Belgium and Switzerland in October 2009, and made it into the Top 50 general sales on iTunes. The album stayed for 3 weeks in the Top 10 on iTunes Alernative Chart and Top 10 in the FNAC Record Stores. The French press has been unanimous in their praise for the The Dodoz, comparing them to the best of British indie rock. The album received the thumbs up from France’s top culture/music magazine Les Inrockuptibles whose “sticker of approval” appeared on the CD.
The first single “Do You Like Boys?” reached n°1 on France’s leading national rock station « Le Mouv » and the band’s indie videos have all been home paged by You Tube and Dailymotion.
The band made available the stems from on of their more dancy tracks “Bet” for anyone to remix, and published their favourite 5 mixes from around the globe on their myspace page.
