Guardian Review

Doves show that heaven knows they’re not miserable now

Since Joy Division and the Smiths, critics have married the words “Mancunian” and “miserablist”. From Elbow to I Am Kloot, it seems a northern soul is always a sad one, right? Wrong. Doves have always demonstrated that they can pen sky-reaching anthems, as their forthcoming Best Of album shows. New track Andalucia is no exception. “The world that we see, belongs to you and me,” sings Jimi Goodwin in a voice that soars higher than the clouds. It seems even heaven knows they’re not miserable now.

Interview

Andy Spoke to XFM Manchester’s Pete Mitchell on Sunday March 28th. You can listen to here. The bit missing is basically just Andy talking about how somebody suggested they should revisit Blue Water for the Best Of. What you will hear is Andy talk about the origins of Andalucia and the band’s plans for the rest of the year.

Lyrics

I’ve seen a place
A place of Falling Rivers
Where we can breathe again
Let me see
Let me know
Let me see the Wall
That echoes in your mind…

Rain, falls, falling on the window
I ain’t seen the sun in days
Bring me back
Bring me back the hope we found that day
Seems far far away

And the world we see
Belongs to you and me
If we’re Looking- Andalucía
And the love you bring
Won’t mean a thing
If you don’t win – Andalucía

Days, feel strange
Impossible to remember
You’re a thousand miles away
I can’t rest
I cannot sleep
I’m feeling numb, almost dazed
Can you be the same?…

The same, dreams, of swimming in the ocean
White surf is all around
I can’t think
Well I can’t stop
To think of her with him
So far far away
