The Dove & The Wolf are ready to break your heart. As Parisians, they’re more familiar with the language of love and loss, more familiar with all manner of heartbreak and actions done for the heart’s sake than us Americans. Lou and Paloma, holders of the ornithological and canine namesake, released an EP in 2012 that really struck a chord with a lot of folks. I think it has to do with space – the airiness in the song, as well as the intimacy the group creates between the listener and themselves. And the singing, the wonderful harmonies that soar – Earth angels Lou and Paloma are seasoned heartstring plucking veterans.
We caught wind of the duo after their high profile tour with Rachel Yamagata and Philly’s own Hemming. I suppose they were taken with our fair town, as the two recently relocated to the City of Brotherly Love from the City of Lights. They are currently working on a debut full length with Butch Walker. Beyond our in-studio session, an excellent Shaking Through Session should hold you over until new music is released. Also, catch The Dove And The Wolf at Milkboy Philly on March 23rd (with Gillian Grassie) and at the Boot and Saddle on April 29th (with LOUDS).
