    Just For A Day - 2024 Reissue

      Just For A Day is the 1991 debut album by English shoegaze band Slowdive. The production on Slowdive’s debut commenced shortly after they convinced Alan McGee, head of Creation Records, the band had enough songs written for a full-length album. Slowdive actually did not. The group hurriedly began writing songs in the studio, experimenting with sounds during the process.

        Pygmalion - 2024 Reissue

          Just before they disbanded, Slowdive put out the album Pygmalion in 1995. It was by far their most abstract album, coming from sugary pop on Just For A Day and the mature, experimental Souvlaki. Slowdive began to incorporate more elements of ambient electronica on Pygmalion.

          Everything Is Alive - Piccadilly Records AOTY Edition

            THE PICCADILLY RECORDS ALBUM OF THE YEAR 2023.

            Everything Is Alive, Slowdive’s 5th record, is exactly what the title suggests: an exploration into the shimmering nature of life and the universal touch points within it.

            While there are parts of this record that could sit neatly next to the atmospheric quality of 1995’s Pygmalion; everything is alive also manages to break down the boundaries of what’s come before it. Spanning psychedelic soundscapes, pulsating 80’s electronic elements and John Cale inspired journeys, the album lands immediately as something made for 2023 and beyond.

            For a genre that is often thought of as divisive, and often warrants introspection, here Slowdive show their craft as the masters of it by pushing it outwards, beyond the singular; the end result being a record which feels as emotional and cathartic as it is hopeful.

            STAFF COMMENTS

            Liam says: When Slowdive returned in 2014, there was a real sense of jubilation and satisfaction that the shoegaze legends were finally getting their well deserved dues and plaudits. However in the years following their return, the world's landscape changed significantly. Not just on a global scale, but also on a personal level for members of the band. 'everything is alive' was born during a heavy period of grief, which can be felt on the closer “The Slab” - a visceral and overwhelming wall of sound that you just want to crawl into for solace and to escape the troubles of the world.
            Despite these moments of sadness, there is real artistry in the way Slowdive manages to reflect on the human experience and how we navigate it throughout our lives. This in turn results in an absolute marvel of a record, with some of Slowdive's best work to date. Opener “Shanty” is an all-consuming shoegaze epic of colossal proportions, whilst the gorgeous “Prayer Remembered” is an atmospheric slice of ambient perfection that harks back to Slowdive's 1990 debut EP. The dreamy ”Alife” swirls amongst Rachel Goswell's ethereal vocals, which is then followed by the stripped back and vulnerable delivery of Neil Halstead on the exquisite and delicate “Andalucia Plays”. Then there's “Kisses”, the album's most 'pop' moment but also one of its best. Finally, we have the woozy headiness of “Skin In The Game” and the synth led and almost post-rock “Chained To A Cloud”, both of which just further emphasise the greatness of 'everything is alive'.
            With 'everything is alive', Slowdive are well and truly full of life. Whilst their 2017 self-titled felt like a celebration of their legacy, the poignancy and beauty of 'everything is alive' feels like Slowdive never left and we hope they stay with us forever.

              Andy says: Hallelujah! The Kings and Queens of Shoegaze return with a beautiful record which feels like everything you'd want from a new Slowdive LP. It ticks all the boxes. Everything they've done rolled into one blissed-out dream. It's brilliant!

              Dream Voyager (Inc. Slowdive Remix)

                Following the recent release of the "Exist" EP, Cuts - composer and filmmaker Anthony Tombling Jr - releases "Dream Voyager", with remixes from shoegaze legends Slowdive and Village Green labelmate Ben Chatwin.

                The original’s electric hum, pounding drums and indistinct vocals are reassembled by shoegaze heavyweights Slowdive and Village Green labelmate Ben Chatwin. The former remould the tune inline with their image by adding a pulsating heartbeat and swathes of atmospheric guitar while on the flip Chatwin transforms the tune almost beyond recognition, into a rumbling monster decked with cascading analogue synths and distorted percussion.

                  The world has finally caught up with Slowdive. A band whose reach goes far beyond just influencing music is back, with their first new album in 22 years.

                  The album is called ‘Slowdive’ - self-titled in an echo of their debut EP from 1990, and is remarkably direct.

                  Deftly swerving what co-vocalist/guitarist Rachel Goswell terms “a trip down memory lane”, these eight new tracks are simultaneously expansive and the sonic pathfinders’ most direct material to date.

                  Self-titled with quiet confidence, Slowdive’s stargazing alchemy is set to further entrance the faithful while beguiling a legion of fresh ears.
