Since forming in 2011, Coves’ Beck Wood and John Ridgard have been quietly growing into a force to be reckoned with. Their debut album ‘Soft Friday’ finally sees its release next week, capturing that journey in the scuzz-rock stomp of The Kills, enchanting allure of Nico and the garage fuzz of The Velvet Underground. It’s a tantalising combination and one that gives Beck’s tales of heartbreak even more punch and power.
