03. Slowdive – Slowdive

These past few years marked an almost massive return of the 90s, to which we all said «thank you very much» and just sat back and enjoyed. Slowdive was one of those bands that resurfaced, after a (way too) long absence, and, quite frankly, reminded us of all the reasons the 90s is the most musically perfect decade to (my) memory.

Slowdive’s Slowdive was released this May, their first album since 1995. A deeply beautiful album, that honors the airy breath of music that is shoegaze. From dreamy tunes to harsh guitars, paired with a musical mastery, Slowdive is nothing short of a truly great album.

Slowdive have always been a force to be reckoned with, but this time around they make a statement: «Yes. We are. That. Good». Surprising and not-so-much, a clear celebration of a genre that was as much adored as it was overlooked, Slowdive’s self-titled album is not to be missed. It is a gem among gems.
