If you are still holding out to hear the album on release day. Then you can head over to Stereogum to hear Winter Hill with the band’s blessing. This will be the next single. Out June I’m told.
Don’t forget later today doves will be performing a live session from Maida Vale in London on the Dermot O’Leary show BBC Radio 2 at 2PM.
Here is a review of the Kingdom Of Rust single as featured in the California Chronicle…
DOVES Kingdom Of Rust ***
With a futuristic glow and vintage rhythm, this sounds like far- flung folk music from a planet spinning off its axis. Four Doves- free years have whetted the appetite for the Manc trio’s return, and the title track from their imminent album is suitably grand, lustrous and melancholic. Not exactly a departure, but still a cut above mere mortals.
