Coves – Beating

Beautiful strings and sketchy beats, glitchy synths and soaring wails, soft cooing vocals and powerful assertions, vulnerable verses and acidic cutting choruses, on new song Beating Coves have taken every genre, every sound, every tactic, every noise, thrown them together without depleting the power of the individual but making every single one greater than the some of its parts. At three minutes in we are treated to what sounds like swooning woodwind, which has no right to be there, but works gloriously. Robust and rousing, it grows into a mystifying blooming crescendo, the disintegrating relationship Beck Wood sings off dissipating into an ethereal and energetic spacey tune. Bubbling with hiss, crackling synths, its full of disintegrating snarls and giddy intensity, all delivered with cinematic sleekness. Some shoegaze, C86, dreampop, disco, goth, psychedelia, everything we have come to expect from Coves since their formation in 2011, and their debut EP  Cast A Shadow which was released last year is here to full effect. Just fantastic
