Coves – Last Desire


Welcome UK duo Coves to B3SCI. The twosome made a bit of a blogosphere splash at the end of last year with their “Wicked Game” cover. “Last Desire”, the duo’s proper debut, is a stomper (maybe one of the spaciest, most fuzzed-out stompers of all time but still a stomper). The layered distorted syncopations of guitarist John Rigard are quite sharp and do well to complement vocalist Beck Wood’s deep-in-the-pa cool delivery. The band are playing some dates later this month in the UK, which you can scope out below.

Coves dates:
12th February – Cardiff, The Moon Club *
13th February – Brighton, The Green Door Store *
14th February – London, Hoxton Bar and Kitchen*
15th February – Birmingham, Hare and Hounds*
16th February – Manchester , The Borderline*
20th February – London, The Borderline with Night Engine
13th March – London, Birthdays – single launch show
