Legends of shoegaze, Slowdive, recently returned with their first studio album in 22 years. A spectacular record to behold, their self-titled offering is like a lucid-dream.
Thick guitar beds lined with punchy bass riffs, Slowdive’s sound will always be their own. Cloaked in reverb, each element blends effortlessly together forming into one significant swelling entity.
The band reformed in 2014 for a string of hometown shows and marked their debut EP’s 25th anniversary the following year.
Now back on the touring circuit, Music Crowns caught up with band members Christian Savill and Nick Chaplin at Pohoda Festival to discuss record labels, their return and plans for 2017.
