New Zealand (UK-based) band Popstrangers are back with a new single, their first released on Rice Is Nice Records and their first new music since 2014.
‘Are Pigeons Doves?” drifts along with a hypnotic, ethereal feel. There’s a tinge of Radiohead in the underlying tension, high register vocal and drum-less arrangement.
Popstrangers explain: ‘Are Pigeons Doves?’ is about the conversation I had with a friend, where he told me Pigeons and Doves were from the same family of birds. We had a conversation about how Doves could be universally loved as symbols of peace and then Pigeons were treated like pests. It’s an attempt at a lullaby based on the assumptions we make at first sight.
