New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
On March 24, The French-born, Philadelphia-based duo The Dove & The Wolf will re-release their 2016 EP I Don't Know What To Feel with two new and unreleased tracks. The band has signed with Oxford, Mississippi's Fat Possum Records for the release of the EP, which will now be available on vinyl for the first time.
Today, the band shared "Motion Sickness" from the forthcoming EP. Stream "Motion Sickness" via Soundcloud:
The track was premiered by Clash, who said; "it's stunned, fragmented atmosphere results in something haunting, yet still beautiful."
Previously, NPR Music
premiered the video for "Seven Days" that was directed by Eliu Cornielle and features dancer Jasmine Mendoza. WXPN's Bruce Warren called the song "...shimmering, beautiful and languorous."
The Dove & The Wolf consists of the joint songwriting team of Paloma Gil and Lou Hayat, who have been playing together for more than 10 years. I Don't Know What To Feel was recorded and produced by Dave Hartley (The War On Drugs, Nightlands) and Nick Krill (The Spinto Band, Teen Men), at Dave's studio in Fishtown, Philadelphia in March 2016.
After spending twelve months across 2014-2015 touring with musicians like Rachael Yamagata, Butch
Walker and Hemming, the duo had no intention of slowing down. "When we packed our things in Philadelphia and returned to Paris last September, we thought we would be back in America
soon after" Lou says. "We had just started working on our first album in LA when our one-year visas expired. Our lawyer told us it would probably take a month, maybe a month and a half to get back." It took five.
Paloma nods in agreement. "We almost never questioned whether we would get the visas and return to America. But then it was like okay, it's been two months and we haven't heard anything. That made these new relationships even more intense. And then the attacks happened."
"In the weeks after, nothing made sense anymore. We were so lost." Lou finishes her thought with an intimacy common between the best friends. "Thank God we were still in Paris. It was important to be there in those weeks."
When the girls returned to Philadelphia, they put a band together with drummer Craig
Hendrix (Japanese Breakfast, Auctioneer, Jesse
Hale Moore, Birdie Busch) and bass player Andy Black
(Laser Background). They tracked the songs live with their new band members and Jesse
Hale Moore on keys.
The Dove & The Wolf are currently on tour with Jens Lekman
and will perform three times during the SXSW conference.
