Coves Premiere New Video For "Wake Up" From Debut 'Soft Friday'

UK duo Coves have released a new video for song "Wake Up" from their critically acclaimed debut album Soft Friday, which will see its North American release on September 2. The band will join The Raveonettes on tour staring September 22 in San Francisco

"Wake Up" is the album’s closing track and a firm fan favorite, described by the NME as "a blast of winning lysergic pop, it’s both two fingers up at a former lover and proof that Coves are on the path to making something truly outstanding."

“I remember recording ‘Wake Up’ and having the skeleton of a song,” recalls John Ridgard, one half of the psych-pop duo. “Beck came round but nothing was working. We got really frustrated and bought a couple of bottles of wine. We were in this raucous state and it just came out.”

“It’s about my ex,” Beck Wood explains of the song’s meaning. “It was me proving that ‘I am who I am and you’re just nothing to me anymore.’ It was meant to be a strong song, especially for me, personally, to say ‘Look at me now.’”

CRITICAL QUOTES FOR TIDAL WAVE:

“With an elevated sense of passion and drive, Young Liars have shown that they have grown off their previous experience with their latest release... They are the kind of group that show every sign of being on the verge of breaking through.”
Earmilk

"...a terrific number that’s bound to be on heavy rotation for us this summer. ‘Young Again’ by Canadian dream pop quartet Young Liars will get stuck in your head immediately with its woozy synths, triumphant drumbeats, and crooning vocals."
- The Wild Honey Pie

“...the band is certainly due to make a splash in 2014.” - Indie Shuffle

"a heady dreamy slice of pop sweet enough to tide me over until the weather (hopefully) turns warm and sunny." - Don't Need No Melody

“…what should be a sure thing, summer anthem...” – Alt Citizen (re “Young Again”)

“…an uplifting ode to teenage romance.” – All Things Go (re “Night Window”)

Dear Reader, I don't remember much, but I remember this one thing with clarity.I was in the backyard looking up at my father; he was bent over raking leaves, explaining to me over his shoulder what it meant to be a good man‐‐to keep your word and do the work you set out to do. I was a child then and the words were a mystery, having little conception of what kind of man I would be, what sort of work I would do or how I would set about doing it.

When discussing ‘Father John Misty’, Tillman paraphrases Philip Roth: ’It’s all of me and none of me, if you can’t see that, you won’t get it’. What I call it is totally arbitrary, but I like the name. You’ve got to have a name. I never got to choose mine.”
