Good things come to those who wait. The Doves, who spent four years flying under the radar after wild success with 2005’s Some Cities, returned to Boston on Sunday night to end a US tour on a pleasantly haunting note.
An excellent setlist set the spellbinding tone at the House of Blues. Touring in support of their latest album, Kingdom of Rust, Doves started the Boston show with three new tunes. The first “Jetstream”, with its slow-building structure, readied the crowd for the rest of the show’s chilling surprises. The band powered through a mix of old and new songs, mostly new, which revealed fans’ approval of the Brit band’s new work.
