Do No Harm’s ‘Open’ Represents A Search For Meaning

Posted by

London three-piece Do No Harm have shared powerful new song ‘Open’.

The three-piece are formed from a triptych of contradictory talents, each with their own speciality. Husband and wife team Jess Mills and Finn Vine are joined by friend Owen Dyke, merging their respective sounds and personalities.

New single ‘Open’ is out now, an intense evocation from the group. Renowned producer Ali Chant linked with Seb Rochford of Polar Bear to complete these studio sessions, with Do No Harm aiming to pin down the idea of a ‘meaningful life’.

Probing their quest for meaning, the track merges folk tapestries with a certain rawness, reminiscent of an acoustic take on Portishead, if you could imagine such a thing.

Having worked with the likes of Leftfield and Joe Goddard vocalist Jess is able to bring something new and potent to the table. A dramatic performance, the trio comment:

“The song looks at the yearning we all have for a ‘meaningful life’, and how that sometimes leads to a destructive relationship with devotion. It is based on The Books Of Jacob’s self proclaimed messiah, Jacob Frank. It was an honour to shoot the video with Steve Gullick.”

Tune in now.
