Doves @ Splendour In The Grass

Earlier today, doves performed at the Splendour In The Grass festival in Byron Bay, Australia. Here’s some of the coverage from twitter & TripleJ.

Jimi spoke to tripleJ radio earlier. Some of it has been featured on a blog post “Doves Last Blogcast”.

Here’s a bit of the interview:

When did you get to Byron – any time off on this tour? What’s your impressions so far?

we landed in byron at about 1.00pm today straight from Japan so we haven’t had a chance to see this amazing town this time round ( but we were here in 2005 and had a few days off and had a great time)

New Interview With Triple J Radio

Jimi recently spoke with Australia’s Triple J Radio, via a phone interview with DJ Zan Rowe.

Triple J

Jimi from Doves tells you about their Kingdom of Rust…

Manchester band Doves are, this week, releasing their fourth album. The trio have long traded in epic, drama filled music. You hear Jimi Goodwin’s voice and you know you’re listening to a Doves album.

It took four years for Doves to give us a new record, and interestingly they’ve changed it up on their latest Kingdom of Rust. There’s krautrock, disco and electro elements this time around, but they’ve still kept their trademark sweeping guitar sound.

Last week I got onto the phone with lead singer Jimi from the band to talk about the new album, and asked him why they took so long to create Kingdom Of Rust.
