Øyafest: The Last Honest Rock´N´Roll-Band

Thanks to Vivi Stenberg for submitting this to us, and for the translation! The latest review of doves Øyafest set gives them a 6 out of 6 rating, with the headline, stating they are the last honest rock band!

Det siste ærlige rockebandet

Det er mulig å forestille seg annet og bedre U2, ukorrumpert av gigantoman livsstil, desperat posisjonering og sin egen kronglete vei mot middelmådigheten, og uten Bono brautende bak mikrofonstativet. Manchester-kvartetten Doves, som har lagd lyd i et drøyt tiår uten at kloden har endret bane av den grunn, høres ut som dette bandet. Få grupper utforsker balansen mellom raffinement og et bankende hjerte med like givende resultat, og idet skyene ruller innover Sjøsiden under “10:03″ er det åpenbart at dette blir en sjelfull seanse.

Øyafestivalen Review


Jez on stage at Øya

Came across a review of doves Øyafest set, in Norwegian. So if you can read Norwegian then head over to read the review here.

For those of us who need google translate, the jist of it seems to be that the band had troubles early in the set, due to the loudness of a act on another stage? But they still managed to please the crowd with the likes of Jetstream, Kingdom Of Rust, 10.03 and The Outsiders from the new album, as well as classics like Pounding & The Fear. Apologies if it was me who got the jist of it wrong! Google translate wasn’t so clear.

If any of you great folks from Norway attended the show and would like to submit a review (in Norwegian is fine) please email us. Would be happy to put it up for our Norwegian readers.
