Biography

This Scottish trio offered a commercial, beautiful, dreamy expression of the early 90’s UK obsession with spacey ambient “chill out” music, as practiced by The Orb and Sven Väth among others.

Fronted by vocalist Dot Allison, One Dove released five singles (including “Why Don’t You Take Me”, “Breakdown” and “White Love”) plus had their song “Fallen” featured in the soundtrack to the trashy cult classic “Showgirls”. They released their sole album Morning Dove White in 1993.

After they aborted the recording of a second album in 1995, Dot Allison went on to have a respectable solo career further exploring the sounds of electronica and electroclash; Ian Carmichael went on to be a remixer/producer for various artists including Manchester band Lamb.

    Whoa, I didn't know that Dot was more popular that One Dove. Thought it would be the other way

    Circuitry, try out the Secret Knowledge mixes of Why Dont you take me & Breakdown. They're a lot better than the original mixes mate.

    Best discovery I've made in ages, truly great stuff. Oh and circuitry, your criticisms really are exaggerated.

    Why do these guys wait three fucking minutes to actually start the song? Each track sounds like a remix (of the boring kind). Long intros based on the same loop don't make for good music and put the listener to sleep. This is more a knock out than a chill out.
