Formed in 2011 in Leamington Spa, Coves – consisting of bewitching singer Rebekah Wood and multi-instrumentalist John Rigard - released their debut EP ‘Cast A Shadow’ last year to critical acclaim.
Having been included in numerous tips for 2013, Coves can count the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe,Huw Stephens, Nick Grimshaw and 6Music’s Lauren Laverne, Don Letts and Radcliffe and Maconie as fans.
‘’No Ladder’ is a febrile, subterranean pop clatter akin to prime MGMT and ‘Cast A Shadow’ is Sleigh Bells injected with a dose of The Supremes. Coves are catchy and cavernous, and in Nico-esque singer Rebekah Wood they have a cruel chanteuse crushing indie hearts with a mere sneer.’ NME
'Presenting a sparkling set of silvery pop songs, Coves exude a similarly grizzled attitude to The Kills, bolstering their sassy spirit with tinges of 60s psychedelia injected into their tracks' The Fly
'Coves psychedelic-tinged, layered, propulsive spin on rock and roll cast a spell too pronounced to be ignored' Loud & Quiet
‘Magnificent slacker grittiness.’ The Independent
‘A thing of beauty. Pop tones matched by slivers of visceral noise.’ Clash
‘A shimmering concoction of psychedelic guitar riffs, dreamy yet confident vocals, and quirky beats reminiscent of bands such as Animal Collective or Braids.’ Notion
