“Some bands are rooted in the reality of the here and now,” says Jez. “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.” A self-titled debut will be out in the U.S. this September, but listen to the single "Voyager 1" via the video below or on YouTube. The space adventure concept is written, designed, drawn, animated, edited and directed by Alden Volney -- complementing the musical journey of the song, already a pick for my next playlist.
