Twenty two years on from their last record, SLOWDIVE have made a resounding comeback with their self-titled fourth LP, one of the strongest shoegaze albums of recent years. The band’s live comeback has also been rapturously received around the world. Highlights thus far include a festival-conquering, sea-of-devotees Primavera Sound performance, of which Pitchfork noted: ‘The beauty of their crystalline sound is almost hard to believe, every note in its perfect place.’ Dive into their outstanding catalogue (1991’s Just For A Day, 1993’s Souvlaki and 1995’s experimental Pygmalion) to see why Slowdive has a legion of fans, both new and old. Listen to their gorgeous new single ‘Sugar For The Pill’. We wish every band would age this well.
