Please to Meet You: Coves
Opening the old inbox today, I found a very kind email from Coves, featuring links to several songs, and a brief history. Now, after enjoying these tracks all day long, it’s time I introduce you to the group. They’re comprised of duo Beck Wood and John Risgard, both hailing from the United Kingdom; they’ve just put out their Cast a Shadow EP via Cross Key Records. My initial thought was that they’re some dreamy bedroom pop group, and you can see that when listening to the first track I’m posting, on which Beck takes the lead vocal, but I can see something else lurking beneath that concept. If you take a listen to the second jam below, is it just me, or is there some of that gospel-infected pop that J. Spaceman has included in his work? Regardless, I’ve been enjoying the soulful tunes these two have been making, so I had to share it with you, in hopes that the good word would spread!
