Soul/R&B singer Doe Paoro throws party at Dirty Laundry for new album "After"

Brooklyn singer Sonia Kreitzer, formerly of Sonia's Party, has recently moved to her new home in Los Angeles as Doe Paoro, her soul/R&B alter ego. It's cause for celebration — Paoro has a new album that's about to be released, and LA locals get an exclusive chance to hear it live first.

After (out September 25th via ANTI- Records) has been a three-year effort with producers Just Vernon (Bon Iver) and BJ Burton, a definite maturation of Paoro's cabin-fevered opus, the sublime debut Slow to Love. Torch songs like the latest single "Nostalgia" embroiders synthwave textures with candid, disconsolate lyrics. With a voice that's been compared to Lykke Li, Zola Jesus, and James Blake, Paoro connects memorable pop hooks to deeper musings on seasonality and the cyclical nature of time.

"The record is a meditation on time, and its illusions — the way each ending is simultaneously a beginning; its ability to speed up, drag or stand still; contract or expand a moment — and the only awareness of what it had been coming retrospectively, or After."

Doe Paoro is holding an exclusive free release party for her label debut After tomorrow night at the Dirty Laundry, touring North America soon after with Little May and Givers. RSVP to celebrate with Paoro, and listen to RAC's remix of "Nostalgia" below. - Ryan Mo
