Doves

Before embracing Brit-pop in the late '90s, Doves' three members -- vocalist/bassist Jimi Goodwin, guitarist Jez Williams, and drummer Andy Williams -- figured prominently in the Madchester scene, where they scored a Top Five single as part of the dance combo Sub Sub. "Ain't No Love (Ain't No Use)" peaked at number three in the U.K., but Sub Sub failed to produce any significant follow-up hits, and a fire destroyed their recording studio in February 1995. After taking several years to restructure their sound, the musicians reappeared in 1998 as Doves, whose sweeping pop/rock material owed more to the Verve and Radiohead than Sub Sub's club-oriented peers.

Doves debuted in October 1998 with the Cedar EP, which sold out of its limited pressing and paved the way for the musicians' association with Badly Drawn Boy (who employed them as his backing band on several singles). Doves released two additional EPs, Sea and Here It Comes, before signing a European contract with Heavenly Records, the venerable London-based label that had recently scored a hit with Beth Orton. Heavenly issued Doves' full-length debut, Lost Souls, in April 2000, while an American release followed in October via the Astralwerks label. Marrying traces of Sub Sub's danceable past with an emphasis on live pop/rock instrumentation, Lost Souls earned a nomination for the Mercury Prize -- which the band ironically lost to Badly Drawn Boy -- and spawned three Top 40 singles in the U.K. By 2001, the band's American representation had been upgraded to Capitol Records, and Doves returned to the U.K. charts one year later with The Last Broadcast. The sophomore album debuted atop the charts in England and, like its predecessor, climbed to platinum status, propelled in part by the number three single "There Goes the Fear."

While assembling their third album, Some Cities, Doves retreated to the English countryside and took up residence in a number of cottages, churches, and intimate recording studios. Although conceived far away from the band's native Manchester, Some Cities still sported an urban tone, and the album climbed to number one during its first week of release. Doves' audience was further expanded through a number of touring efforts, some of which saw the band opening for the likes of U2, Oasis, and Coldplay. Several years later, Doves once again decamped to more rural surroundings -- this time to the agricultural community of Cheshire, England, where they set up shop in a converted farmhouse -- to record another album. Kingdom of Rust was ultimately released in April 2009, followed by a greatest hits album one year later. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

Best band in the world no one ever heard of!
Dreamy Lush Intoxicating
amazing sound. I wish they would go on tour more often
good song!
love their sound
paulyingling
yes let's steal from the lightning seeds and call it our own. That sounds like a plan.
now i know why they call them the doves because they play so peaceful
Last Broadcast is my favorite Doves album (every song is good/great). . . . . Though Catch the Sun off Lost Souls is what introduced them to me back in '00-ish....a w e s o m e tune! Their tunes are works of art...
such a great band!!!!!
most overlooked band beside the chameleons uk- Firesute is luscious!
Firesuite is one of the best chill-out songs I know.....
alexrosas27
Been listing to these guys since 2000. Great band and great sound.
Try Dear and the Headlights- Run in Front, Daysleeper or The Weeks- Buttons, Sailor Song. Music that needs to be brought to the attention of the mass population for the good of the world. Please pass this wave of truly great unrecognized music onward!!!!
Try the band Dear and the Headlights if you really like these guys!
truly high art-- not for the masses
These guys are the most underrated band ever. Such a distinct sound; really are experts of their instruments. Their best album has to be Lost Souls or Some Cities. It's a shame they will never be too popular here in the states!
love it
Yes!
Thumbs up.

Thank you Pandora for introducing me to this band! How did I live before hearing Kingdom of Rust?
kapumano
I also believe they are under appreciated. . . . . . b u t they infinitely blow the doors off of Coldplay.... . . . t h a t Paltrow guy cannot effing sing.
gwleon6
Incredibly under-rated band. On par with Coldplay, just with the wrong label I guess.

I adore Doves so much! I've loved them for years and all their albums are strong. Their music takes me to another place, a trance-like state of mind, I think. Whew!
A true band, not like alot of the crap that is passed as good music!
Love "Kingdom of Rust"
I never, ever get tired of DOVES. I think they are so brilliant. I tell everyone about them. I describe them as what Pink Floyd might sound like today if they were still in their creative peak. Favorite, favorite current band. Probably even more than Radiohead. The song 10:03 from "Kingdom of Rust" blows my friggin' mind everytime. Wish they'd come to Nashville.
Pretty good. song. want to hear more though. good comparison to old verve and radiohead.
schiellack
How about some Doves music on your Doves channel. It sounds more like a Radiohead channel. Also, where is Elbow? They are most like Doves. A very disappointin g mix.
blueoctoberk i t t y
Amazing lyrics, beautiful instrumentat i o n and vocals... Probably one of my top favorite bands.
Dymanite. Every Doves song is a bonaza to my ears.
One of the most underrated bands out there , Seen em live in Ireland , Fantastic , check em out on jools holland live on youtube. Great stuff
stephprezel
Lead singer sounds like Dave Grohl when he's not screaming... "One of These Days" is a pretty cool tune - like to hear more. :)
jlaug
they sound very similar to love drug
good stuff, however i fail to see the connection to Bloc Party, other than the fact they're both from the UK.
gabriel1laru s s o
The lead signer's voice reminds me so much of Swervedriver , the band's sound is reminiscent of "Shoegazer" music. Not hearing the Coldplay references. Good stuff
For some reason I was worried about their new album before it came out, but the second I heard jetstream I immediately wondered why I was ever worried. Outstanding band
They DO put on an awesome show. :D And they added Kingdom of Rust to there discography! Whooo!
I've heard Doves put on an awesome show. I can't wait to see them when they come to MPLS. EPIC!!!
I love the doves. My husband and I saw them at the Fillmore in San Francisco last night (5/18/09)and it was a wonderful show.
They need to get Kingdom of Rust on here asap! That is such a great CD.
great band!
Great sound.. love the song Lost Souls...
Pandora should get their new CD up here. It's totally out right now, and it's totally awesome.
I love it so far! These guys are absolutely great!
Emo? Seriously?

Anyways, I'm really hoping to get a chance to see them when they tour, as far as I know they'll be making a single stop in my state, which is extraordinar i l y rare, and very cool.
They are touring in the states this spring. Check ticketma$ter for dates.
simply amazing.
May be too emo for a Strokes fan. Get them Raconteurs.
Would a Strokes fan like this?
