Praise From UK Media For Soft Friday:
“Their electro-garage-rock wall of sound imagines The Velvet Underground force-feeding hallucinogens to The Ronettes… cold-blooded revenge pop that strikes like a shard of shattered plate to the heart.” - 9/10 NME
“Borrowing from fellow Reed-acolytes TJAMC, Mazzy Star and The Raveonettes, the debut album from Midlands boy-girl duo Coves ticks all the right boxes - primal drumming, razor-sharp guitars and lyrics that blur the line between romantic obsession and narcotic dependency… very good indeed.” – 4/5 Q Magazine
“a terrific debut full of scuzzed-up guitars, dirty synths, nihilistic lyrics and Wood’s magnificently bored - although never boring – vocals.” – Uncut
“There’s bits of Mazzy Star in here, bits of the Velvet Underground and hints of the Jesus and Mary Chain… atmospheric, distinctive and very enjoyable.” - DIY
“Languid vocals, reverb-treated feedback, narcotized echoes of 1960s girl groups via the Jesus and Mary Chain… a gripping debut album.” – 4/5 Financial Times
UK duo Coves will release their anticipated debut album, Soft Friday, in North America on September 2, 2014. Today sees the release of lead single “Beatings,” along with a remix from Lynchmob, available on iTunes.
