“The beauty of their crystalline sound is almost hard to believe, every note in its perfect place.” – Pitchfork
“Slowdive washes entire canvases in buckets of sound, creating gradient color schemes… perfect sound, perfect lighting conditions, and hypnotic background imagery…” – Consequence of Sound
“Incredible comeback single “Star Roving” is the perfect example of this new Slowdive. The lush guitars are rugged yet beautifully layered and Halstead’s voice” – The Line Of Best Fit
UK shoegaze pioneers Slowdive make their long-awaited Australian debut in 2018. Nearly thirty years after forming and after a twenty-two year hiatus, Slowdive reunited in 2014 to play Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona. In January, they released the beguiling single ‘Star Roving’, followed by a self-titled fourth album in May, a return to form hailed by Stereogum as, “as stunning a comeback record as I can recall in recent times. It’s on par with the band’s best work”.
Slowdive’s stargazing alchemy is set to further entrance the faithful while enticing a legion of fresh ears. These eight new tracks, simultaneously expansive and the band’s most direct material to date, have eclipsed any ‘trip down memory lane’, and firmly establish Slowdive as a band at the top of their game.
With major international festival appearances under their belt this year, and a vibrant, atmospheric set, Slowdive remain one of the most potent live bands on the planet.
