Doves – “Kingdom of Rust”

by on May.16, 2009, under Music, Song of the Day

I really try to avoid jumping on bandwagons, but sometimes it just can’t be avoided. Case in point: “Kingdom Of Rust“, the latest single off Dovesnew album of the same name. It’s the indie rock darling of the moment, and for good reason. These English lads sure know how to rock the American cowboy style. Once again, I’m reminded of a more palatable Chris Isaak. Is it just me, or is this some sort of weird trend I’ve uncovered?

Anyway, back on topic… if you’re looking for a mood-heavy, slow-paced song to chill out to, this would be a good choice. Surprisingly, my young son also liked the song, which I take as a good sign. He usually only likes more danceable stuff, so for him to like it means it has a pretty good cross-market appeal.

The video is also very well done.
