SLOWDIVE RETURN WITH FIRST NEW SONG IN 22 YEARS
It took them 22 years, but Slowdive finally returns with new music — a track called “Star Roving”, the long awaited follow up to 1995’s Pygmalion. The band has not missed a step, it sounds like it was done back in the day.
“When the band decided to get back together in 2014, we really wanted to make new music. It’s taken us a whole load of shows and a few false starts to get to that point, but it’s with pride and a certain trepidation we unleash ‘Star Roving.’ It’s part of a bunch of new tracks we’ve been working on and it feels as fun, and as relevant playing together now as it did when we first started. We hope folks enjoy it.”, states vocalist Neil Halstead.
Slowdive features Neil Halstead (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Christian Savill (guitar), Nick Chaplin (bass), Rachel Goswell (vocals) and Simon Scott (drums, electronics). The band is now signed to Dead Oceans.
