Doves get nominated for best British band at Brits

Jimi Goodwin from Doves @ BBC Electric proms

Respect & much love to Doves for getting a Brit award nomination for best British band at the Brits. If you saw them on tour last year or were lucky enough to see them at the electric proms or their homecoming gig in Manchester at Christmas then I think you’ll probably agree the band have matured in to a truly great band.

Having gone about their business over the last 12 years as Doves, 20 including their days as SubSub, without bullshit or bravado they’ve had 2 number 1 records (there would have been 3 if they hadn’t been pipped to the post by 4 sales of a Lady GaGa album!), & their debut album ‘Lost Souls’ was mercury nominated.

There’s some great footage here on youtube from their performance at last years electric proms where they performed with the Bulgarian London Choir. If you already love the band this will remind you exactly why you fell in love with them & if you weren’t sure this should tip you in favor & if you don’t at all what you doing reading this?
