Swedish import. Reminds me of The Plimsouls` debut, The Shazam and some early Jim Basnight(as in the Moberlys) with a bit of the classic Swedish rock/pop edge we hear from bands like Soundtrack of Our Lives and a bit of Radio Birdman thrown in for good melodic punk measure. "You don`t hear power pop done like this these days unless you are listening to power pop done back in the late 70`s. Yet, The Doits pull off sounding nothing like a retro skinny tie band, only an modern rock band with a bunch of 12 string Rickebackers in their musical arsenal. Their music is straight, soulful rock n roll with a pure pop heart, baptized in gentle splashes of distortion, which stops nowhere, kneels to no one."- HangOverhard blog. In their bio, they state the following: " Since the release of their first album, the band members have spent a lot of time listening to a variety of power-pop, punk and new wave artists such as The Posies, Big Star, Reigning Sound, Buzzcocks, Stiv Bators, The Plimsouls, The Vibrators, The Flaming Groovies and The Barracudas to name but a few. Traces of soul, old blues and country & western have also been added to the mix. " well, not sure about the last sentence, I don`t hear it, but all I hear is one of the best new bands coming out of Sweden in a long time! And that is saying something. Do a `sounds like" search on this site on the words "Sweden" or "Swedish" and see how many bands we have from there!
"Mixed by none other than Nicke Andersson (The Hellacopters / Solution) and Thomas Hedblom (Meshuggah) these 12 songs will be a part of your life too. Especially if you like dark minds and have a dirty soul. Most bands who are influenced by the Heartbreakers often lean to either the Johnny Thunders version OR the Tom Petty version. Not so with the Doits. They draw from both bands and this is a great and original idea."- Power Pop Overdose.
