This is the kind of big-sounding rock that would’ve been all over the top 40 back in the ‘90s, chunky and precise power-pop that mixes thick, clanging guitar with exultantly punchy rock production and dreamily reverbed vocals and prominent synths as is the style nowadays.

6/10 Mike Staff review, 27 March 2014

Here’s an LP of grandiose indie rock by hopefuls Coves. This is the kind of big-sounding rock that would’ve been all over the top 40 back in the ‘90s, chunky and precise power-pop that mixes thick, clanging guitar with exultantly punchy rock production and dreamily reverbed vocals and prominent synths as is the style nowadays. I’m sure I can hear the ghosts of Lush, Belly and the Throwing Muses rattling around under their slickly polished veneer.

Single ‘Beatings’ heads into a kind of synthpop style which will appeal to fans of Chvrches and Niki & The Dove. I’m struggling with it to be honest, everything is in the right place but any imagination and emotion seems to be masked by slick neon radio production including a bit that sounds like the Prodigy getting a bit carried away with a slightly-too-loud piercing synth wibble.

People like this stuff though, so I hear. There are moments when they ease off the intensity and play some mid-paced indie rock that reminds me of Brooklyn’s Slothrust a little bit, and these are fairly satisfying, but you’ll have to wade through a swamp of syrupy overproduction to get there.
