DHP Family presents SLOWDIVE
“Listening to Slowdive is like watching the sunrise and sunset at once — an awe-inspiring chorus of the galaxy.” — NPR Music on “Star Roving”
“The mix is even denser and more diffuse than Slowdive’s albums from the 1990s, reveling in the analog blur and sounding glad to be back.” – The New York Times on “Star Roving”
Slowdive recently made their return with new single, “Star Roving,” their first new material in 22 years. It was released to a flurry of excitement, even taking the band to No. 1 on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140. Comprised of Neil Halstead (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Christian Savill (guitar), Nick Chaplin (bass), Rachel Goswell (vocals) and Simon Scott (drums, electronics), Slowdive have already announced a headline slot at London’s Field Day festival this summer, and are now announcing a set of intimate club shows in UK and Europe, their first outside of London since their reformation in 2014.
Slowdive released their debut album, Just For A Day, in 1991 via Creation Records. The esteemed Souvlaki followed in 1993 and Pygmalion in 1995, and then the band disbanded. In the 22 years of their virtual disappearance, the band’s reputation and reverence continued to grow, as people continued to discover and be drawn to their recordings. In 2014, Slowdive announced that they had reunited and over the course of that summer they thrilled emotional crowds across the European festival circuit and the US.
The intention was always that new music would follow. Finally in January 2017 the band signed to Dead Oceans and released their first new single “Star Roving.”
The forthcoming shows will see the band playing a mix of old classics and new material up close and personal.
