Doves : Sea EP

Epic and dazed, the [B]'Sea EP'[/B] follows in the footsteps of last year's [B]'Cedar EP'[/B] by offering us more grand gestures and stoned romance.

Badly Drawn Boy's sometime backing band continue their

steady rise

to greatness with this latest instalment of acoustic psychedelia. Epic and dazed, the 'Sea EP' follows in the footsteps of

last year's

'Cedar EP' by offering us more grand gestures and stoned

romance. If

this was 1984, even as we speak the Doves would be having

their

photo taken halfway up a snowy mountain. But it isn't. They live in downtown Manchester and they'll probably punch the next person to compare them to early U2.



How about The Cure, then?
