Diamond Doves are excited to announce the release of their debut songs “Club Night,” “Hey Lady” and “Is There Any Hope?”. The digital release is in conjunction with the start of their March residency at The Rock Shop in Brooklyn, and their upcoming tour dates, playing in support of good friends The Felice Brothers.
Diamond Doves was formed in 2010 by longtime friends and musical collaborators Nick Kinsey, Brigham Brough and Wyndham Garnett. They met as kids and began a friendship and musical partnership that eventually brought them around the world playing and recording with Elvis Perkins, known collectively as Elvis Perkins in Dearland. Apart from their experience with Elvis, the three have performed as “Dearland Horns,” (Wyndham on trombone, Brigham on saxophone and Nick on clarinet) and have played with many of todays most celebrated bands including My Morning Jacket, Bon Iver, Dr. Dog, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Okkervil River, and others.
The sound of Diamond Doves is the meeting of their three distinct vocal, instrumental and compositional personalities. With a seemingly endless instrumental palette and a penchant for genre-hopping, Diamond Doves draw from a wide range of influences both foreign and domestic, new and old. Their sound at times recalls the mass and drive of Funkadelic, the studio experimentation of Os Mutantes and the democratic ethos of The Band, yet it clearly owes a lot to the pop-craft of contemporaries like Animal Collective, The Walkmen and Kanye West.
Apart from their experience with Elvis Perkins In Dearland, all three Diamond Doves have carved out individual creative paths; Brigham owns and runs Smith Hill Studios in Providence RI where he has recorded bands including Deer Tick and Tallahassee. After a lengthy tenure in the Hudson Valley, Wyndham and Nick recently returned home to NYC, and have been active in the music scene. Wyndham records and performs original music as Little Wolf, and as a drummer, Nick has recorded and performed with the likes of AA Bondy, Felice Brothers, Marco Benevento and others.
