Coves have come a long way in a short time. Just over a year ago ClashMusic was handed a CD containing their first recordings.
Containing incredible amounts of potential, the music embraced therein seemed to swoop between euphoria and melancholy, the past and the future, noise and all out pop. Spending time on the road, Coves have added some serious muscle to their sound.
Now at home on the rejuvenated 1965 Records imprint, new single 'Last Desire' is set to be released on March 18th. Matching buzz saw guitars against angelic, pure-as-snow vocals, 'Last Desire' contains flecks of electronics which act as a dash of colour against the band's slate-grey drama.
As a preview, ClashMusic have been handed the video for 'Last Desire' which you can watch now.
