Doves. It's happening!
« on: July 10, 2020, 02:17:29 PM »
The boys are back with their first album in over 10 years. https://dovesofficial.com/

Will it sound like they've never been away? Possibly. Not that it would be a bad thing but I wonder if my tastes are a bit different now. They are still high on my 'gutted I didn't see live' list so however I feel about this album, I'm definitely up for the tour providing it's a bunch of us in a room with the band in the same room.

I know Doves are highly regarded by some on this forum so would welcome any of your favourites. For those that didn't have the pleasure, think of them like Elbow, but more pounding (pardon the pun), stripped back and less poetic.

Latest song 'released' off it is pretty promising. I like this a lot.

I used to really enjoy their debut and, to a lesser extent, The Last Broadcast. I guess it's time to revisit those.

Im not a huge fan of Doves, but i do enjoy a lot of their songs. I have heard a few now from the upcoming album. They sound good. Unmistakably Doves
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world

Had it on this morning.

It's good...time will tell how good, breaks little to no new ground for them and is unmistakeably a Doves album but manages to not sound tired or dull whilst is the case.

Well worth spending some time with.
