Though LA-based trio, White Dove, no longer goes by the moniker Monster, they haven't been able to shake off a murky, mighty presence that others would surely find intimidating. Case in point? Their new single, "Cold Mountain," featured on forthcoming LP, The Hoss, The Candle, out July 16 via RSRCH & DVLP.
Don't be surprised to find a sonic shadow take form and continue to lurk throughout the song, running just under three minutes long. During the first 20 seconds, you might be convinced "Cold Mountain" is developing into quite the rustic, huddle-around-the-campfire type of track, and that's understandable; it contains the sincere, lingering slide guitar characteristic of melancholic Americana blues. But once Alex Johnstone’s atmospheric vocals kick in, carrying pattering drums and shimmering guitar, this proves to be one overcast and unforgetable pop anthem.
