With their first new music since 2014, New Zealand/U.K.-based trio Popstrangers return with the single and video “Are Pigeons Doves?” plus news of their signing to Rice Is Nice Records.

The band—which consists of Joel Flyger (guitar/vocals), Adam Page (bass) and David Larson (drums)—comment on the new song as follows:

“‘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.”
