Coves will release the single ‘Cast A Shadow’ on 17th March, two weeks ahead of their highly anticipated debut album Soft Friday, which is released in the UK on Nettwerk Records on 31st March 2014.
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 Hype Machine last year and has since been used to advertise ‘The White Queen’ drama series across BBC’s networks.
Watch: “Cast A Shadow”
In September they signed with Nettwerk Records and in November they released ‘Beatings’, the first single to be taken from their 10-track debut album Soft Friday, which is released in the UK on 31st March 2014 (N.America date TBA). Ahead of this they will release the second single from the album; the propulsive garage beauty ‘Cast A Shadow’, on 17th March.
Coves have risen quietly, but elegantly. They have toured with Echo and the Bunnymen, Dutch Uncles and Eugene McGuinness, had their track ‘No Ladder’ remixed by new psych heroes TOY and played to a rammed and rapturous tent at Latitude 2013. They will be touring with Band of Skulls in March – details below.
