It’s possible that we’ve heard the last of Doves. No formal announcement of any forever split has been made, just that the band is currently on hiatus. However, with frontman Jimi Goodwin enjoying a stadium-sized time of it supporting Elbow and a well-received solo album, who knows what the future brings.
The past, thankfully, has delivered us four albums of anthemic floor-fillers and swirling epics, from The Cedar Room and Catch the Sun through to Black and White Town and Kingdom of Rust. For the very best Doves anthems, however, look no further than The Last Broadcast. Here you’ll find the echoing splendour of The Sulphur Man rub shoulders with the rousing Pounding and There Goes the Fear.
