DOVE-i drop trip-hop tinged single “Metamorphosis”
Thomas Verovski and Bastide Donny are the musical masterminds behind DOVE-i. DOVE-i aims to push and bend genre barriers as far as they’ll go, and collaborate with as many musicians as possible. Speaking about their influences and route into music, Thomas shares: ”I come from a jazz and classical background as a pianist, with a speciality at the musician Institute in Los Angeles. And I’ve mostly worked on soundtracks of beautiful documentaries for France Télévision and Arte among others.”
Bastide Donny tells us: “I was working on music productions in my home studio and we were spotted by Luc Besson, who is one of the few filmmakers in France who is willing to give work opportunities to young people who have not yet done much. And it was a good fit, One thing leading to another, he offered us the opportunity to produce the score of a second feature-film, a third film, etc.”
DOVE-i have released their highly anticipated new single “Metamorphosis” in collaboration with Fifi Rong. Featuring impactful drum beats, grooving bass lines and flowing strings, the single blurs cinematic and infectious together. On top, Fifi Rong’s vocals land softly but create a lasting impression. Accompanying is an immersive music video.
“Metamorphosis” has been taken from their up and coming album “It’s Pop Fiction” (out in September 2023). Speaking about the album, they say: “This album was born during the first lockdown in France. In this very special period when the world was at full stop, this opus is in a way the original soundtrack of a movie that nobody would have imagined.
As an act of resilience through art, the songs address deep questions, anchored in the reality of this new decade : inner metamorphosis, artistic questioning, love renewal, identity at the time of the Black Lives Matter movement, richness of the differences, the Earth that we leave to the future generations...So many fundamental themes set in motion through music in a resolutely cinematographic spirit by the Dove-i collective with the collaboration of talents from all over the world.”
With a growing fanbase and huge industry tastemaker support, DOVE-i will make 2023 their year.
