Doves fans will find its business as usual on the band's first new album in 11 years. The Universal Want is pure nostalgia. The kings of catchy melancholia are back after a decade away – and their tried and tested blueprint has lost none of its magic.
The songs are tightly written, setting the troubled lyrics to bright melodies; the dance influences subtle, seamlessly integrated and occasionally surprising. The mournful, ballad-paced title track effectively stops midway through, before reappearing retooled with the kind of beat you’d find on an old Chicago house tune: eventually everything else dies away, leaving just the rhythm track and an acidic synth.
Exclusive WHITE double vinyl pressed by Heavenly Recordings in the Netherlands.
