After an eleven year gap since releasing new music, Doves are back with a new single Carousels, looking back over childhood innocence “It’s a reminiscence of the times that we’d go to places like North Wales on holiday as kids,” says Andy Williams. “Places where you had your first experience of sound systems and music being played really loud.”

Always purveyors of epic indie rock, Doves haven’t lost any of the swooning melodies and driving indie rock substance that they made their name with, as Carousels whips up this dark, slightly melancholy taste, with these descending piano figures drawing yet more emotion out of it. Welcome back, boys.
