Black Rivers is the self-titled debut studio album by English band Black Rivers, formed by former Doves members, Jez and Andy Williams, released on February 6, 2015 through Ignition Records. All the songs were written and produced by the brothers themselves. The album was written and recorded between Andy's studio, Jez's studio at Islington Mill in Salford and a cottage on Anglesey, then mixed in New York.
"It's almost like every song is about immigrants, about yearning for a better life," said Jez, referring in particular to "The Ship" and "Voyager 1" itself. "Sometimes you write this stuff and you don't know. This is a new band and that's how it feels. It doesn't feel like, oh, it's a nice little side project. It's a whole new thing for us."
