Slowdive – Star Roving

Slowdive are back, 22 years after the release of their last piece of music one of shoegaze’ leading lights have honoured us with ‘Star Roving’. But have they righted the wrongs of ‘Pygmalion’? Too right they have because this is a return to the sound that made ‘Souvlaki’ the classic album that it is. In truth and with some relief the Reading outfit are doing what they were born to do with near ambient chord mosaics above, below and around Rachel Goswell and Neil Halstead sweet intertwining vocals. We’ve had Mojave 3 since Slowdive but that was just the interval act, albeit a stellar one, for this faithful reboot (reshoe?). In ‘Star Roving’ Slowdive are sounding like we hoped they would. KD
