The Doves

'It's known as the "Elbow route". A band - ideally from the North-West of England- persevere, totally against pop's grain, build a loyal fan base over several years, endure all manner of setbacks, and then finally become enormously successful. This might be Elbow's story, but the blueprint was established by Doves.


There Goes the Fear must be the most headrushing, euphoric song ever written about paranoia, terror and mid-life crisis.
