Proof that Slowdive’s lush shoegaze pop holds up perfectly well outside studio walls.
Slowdive’s Pitchfork Live performance accentuates the great continuity between their oldest and newest material.
More than just a simple nostalgia trip, the new full-length finds Slowdive building on their celebrated sound.
I have a good feeling Slowdive will fulfill a lot of long-building fan expectations come early May.
Minimalist industrial punk; the return of a shoegaze legend; dreamy inter-dimensional post-punk; and darkly lush pop from Germany.
Despite rarely having been in the same room together, the group will release a full-length album this June.
It’s deeply enjoyable, and even a little moving for this fan, to see Slowdive vindicated after all these years.

All I can think is that I’ve waited two decades for this moment… and it is everything I could’ve hoped for.
