Coves are thrilled to announce that they will be joining Band of Skulls on their UK tour in March 2014. Their highly anticipated debut albumSoft Fridayis released on Nettwerk Records in the UK on March 31, 2014 (North American release date tbd).
Coves have spent the last 18 months quietly acquiring critical acclaim and support from BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Nick Grimshaw, 6Music’s Lauren Laverne, Don Letts and Radcliffe and Maconie and XFM’s John Kennedy, to name but a few. Their scuzzy cover of Chris Isaak’s haunting classic "Wicked Game" peaked at No. 1 on the Hype Machine last year and has since been used to advertise ‘The White Queen’ drama series across BBC’s networks. In September, they signed with Nettwerk Records and in November they released "Beatings," the first single to be taken from their debut album Soft Friday.
Basements hung with fairy lights, 60s tape reels spinning antique spools, drums dusted with white powder. Gritty riffs and psych rock washes slither beneath airy, blissed-blank Nico vocals spinning spectral tales of shattered romance. A beautifully ruined pair – he a leather-clad glowering guitar phantom, she a glacial, broken bombshell – blow glitter at each other through the flashes from old cameras.
