Listen! Black Rivers – The Ship

I am a big fan of Doves, and posted the solo project from singer Jimi Goodwin earlier this year. Now, the other musical brotherly duo from Manchester and other Doves members – Jez and Andy Williams, have formed a new band, called Black Rivers.

Black Rivers - The Ship

According to NME, (who would never lie, right?), Jez Williams said: “Some bands are rooted in the reality of the here and now. I suppose we’ve always been about escapism: searching for something. That’s the link, but I wouldn’t want to think we sound too much like Doves. The exciting thing about Black Rivers is that we had the freedom to go wherever we wanted.”

Check out the sound of freedom below, with new track The Ship. The debut album is expected out in 2015.
