after an 11-year hiatus, their fifth album captures the sound of organic inspiration manifesting in inquisitive, yet masterful, genre chemistry and vast, immediate songwriting.

Refusing once more to fall into predictable, guitar-bass-drums dynamics, the record’s overwhelming sense of intrigue owes everything to Doves’ three decades experience and an autobiographical trip through the sounds of their own lives. From seaside amusements (Carousels) and the remembered heat of acid house (Universal Want) to the aimless summer days of youth (Forest House), each song sets a new reel running to show fragments of their lives and, in turn, those of their listeners. Shadows of Bowie, rare 70’s soul, Detroit House and Afrobeat are cast subtly across the shapeshifting album. this time Doves shift their gaze from upward to inward and the results are spellbinding and beautiful” 9/10 – riff magazine.
