Norwich based Outline
You recently announced a two year break from touring and recording and I wondered what your thinking was behind that?
The main reason is to get off the carousel of tour, studio, tour, studio, tour, studio which just got a bit boring. We’re gonna do some individual projects and then hopefully come back and do the Doves fifth album with something to bring to the table. I think we all need to do individual things for our own sanity really. We’ll come back revitalised ‘cause we’ll have been to different musical territories than we would with Doves so it’s gonna be a good thing.
Are you going to be doing individual music projects or will it be other stuff?
Well we’ll be doing music separately but I can’t tell you anything about it yet.
You were Sub Sub before you were Doves. Have you ever been tempted to release a dance track under an alter ego?
Well that might be part of one of our projects outside Doves, so you might see that, yeah.
There’s been a rumour floating around for a while that you’re going to be doing something with Guy Garvey. Is that still on the cards or has it gone on the back burner?
Yeah that could still be on the cards, absolutely. We’re good mates with Elbow so that could well be a reality.
