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.

This open-channel approach to creativity is reflected by Slowdive's impressively wide field of influence, from indie-rock avatars to ambient voyagers - see the tribute album of cover versions released by Berlin electronic label Morr Music.
“We were always ambitious. Not in terms of trying to sell records, but in terms of making interesting records.” -Neil Halstead
This album, despite the 22 years of rest, serves a very special purpose, and it’s a reminder to all the shoegaze followers of what greatness really looks like.
Pitchfork says about the album:
“Slowdive doesn’t make it look easy. It makes it look hard. Creating music this great almost always is.”
Slowdive’s self-titled album is the work of a band that reformed and recorded by choice, at their own pace.
The album brings the accrued experience of their entire adult lives to bear on music made outside the crucible for the very first time.
Slowdive, as usual, offers maximum-volume shoegaze, better than the band ever has before.
The group serves up an album that is as thoughtful as it is beautiful, which is rare these days in the musical industry.
