I love Doves. I love them with as much man-love as a straight guy can feel for a trio of Brits who have a serious penchant for atmospheric, reverb heavy, cavernous, echoing rock.
They write epic songs that sound like they're being played at the bottom of the sea.
It's as if Neptune decided to throw a party and asked the Doves to play, and all the mermaids got wasted and threw their seashell bras at the stage! Then the giant squids got rowdy and trashed Bikini Bottom and Spongebob got all pissed off and called the cops but there was nothing they could do cuz shit was just WAY out of control. Then, at like four in the morning, Neptune smashed his trident into the Mariana Trench and caused a tsunami and it totally destroyed Atlantis and shit! Then everyone went home, cuz like FUCK, who wants to have to help clean up an epic RAGER like that?!?!?
Oh you don't believe it happened, eh? Well then why did they write this song smart guy?
It's totally about that party!
