Black Rivers – Black Rivers (2015)

Andy and Jez Williams spent over two decades with lifelong friend Jimi Goodwin in Doves and Sub Sub, before embarking on a hiatus in 2010. Whether they will all ever record together again is unclear, but it certainly wasn’t an acrimonious parting, rather a desire on both sides to try something new. Last year Goodwin released his debut Odludek, which sounded more playful than anything he’d done before, yet retained imprints of his former bands soul, particularly that of the Northern variety. Now the Williams twins have remerged with the eponymously titled Black Rivers, which channels their alma mater’s affection for epic guitar music, but adds a more electronica tinged colour to its pallet.
