Doves in Washington State

Thanks to cut_here for bringing this one to our attention, from the Seattle music & nightlife publication Line Out. A cracking read…

For a more positive spin on the show. Check out the three imaginary girls review:

Musically, Doves were pristine. Highlights were the mesmerizing “Sea Song,” accompanied by a surfing video lulling slowly on the back-stage screen to hypnotic effect. “Black and White Town” strikingly recalled Martha & the Vandellas’ R&B classic “Heat Wave,” further illustrating that these Manchester lads never shy too far from their influences (Think the heavy gospel feel of “Satellites” and the Warren Zevon-laden “Hit the Ground Running.”) At the conclusion of “There Goes the Fear,” each band member grabbed a percussion instrument for a raucous ending, sending us off into the night.

Doves are back in Washington state today to play the Sasquatch festival. Doves are scheduled to play the Gorge Amphitheatre from 2:20pm til 3:05pm. If your attending the festival, do let us know of the setlist or if you would like to sumbit a review, email us.

Seattle Crocodile Review

The Sound on Sound give the low down on last night’s intmate show at the newly refurbished crocodile cafe (excellent venue btw!) and look forward to doves Sasquatch festival appearance:

A large part of the Doves dynamic relies the interplay of harmonies and backup singing, looped and heavily reverbed vocals bouncing off of each other and the walls in ways few bands even attempt. Last night the full package was notably missing as guitarist Jez Williams had lost his voice in the previous few days during the start of an American tour. Bassist and lead voice Jimi Goodwin soldiered on unphased for the most part though, getting the necessary backups from a positively excited crowd when needed.
