Doves' Jimi Goodwin Prepares Solo Album

'Odludek' due on March 24th

Doves frontman Jimi Goodwin is set to release his solo album 'Odludek' on March 24th.

There was always much more to Doves than met the eye. Often lumped in with the laddish end of the indie spectrum, in reality the band's material had far more subtlety, more emotion than much of their contemporaries.

Taking a break, frontman Jimi Goodwin kicked off work on a solo record. Titled 'Odludek', the album will be released on March 24th via Heavenly Records.

Introducing the material, Jimi Goodwin said: "I wanted to make this mad mixtape… the kind you’d pass back and forth with your mates; eclectic as fuck. That’s the way we’ve all discovered music over the years isn’t it? We join our own dots to make it all make sense. As I got into making the record, it felt like I was proving something to myself, making a point that I could do all this on my own. You know - I can play bass, I can play guitar, I can orchestrate. As the methods changed, the original concept stayed intact. It’s me, powering through ideas, kapow kapow, no pause for breath. It’s not trying to be wilfully eclectic; it’s just a reflection of how I schizophrenically devour music."
