“The beauty of their crystalline sound is almost hard to believe, every note in its perfect place.” – Pitchfork
The UK shoegaze pioneers make their long-awaited Australian debut in 2018 nearly thirty years after forming and after a twenty-two year hiatus. In May they released a self-titled fourth album, a return to form hailed by Stereogum as, “as stunning a comeback record as I can recall in recent times. It’s on par with the band’s best work”.
They remain one of the most potent live bands on the planet. All details at Penny Drop (http://www.pennydrop.com.au/tour/slowdive)
