Slowdive Biography - Influential Indie Rockers
This mysterious indie outfit formed in 1989 when a dreamy shoegaze sound was the order of the day on the cultish Thames Valley music scene. Headed up by red-haired Rachel Goswell on lead vocals, the band went through line-up transitions in their first few months before experimenting in the recording studio. The promising group demonstrated a wealth of artistic and instrumental, creating a dreamy song catalogue consisting of floating harmonies and rippling guitar effects. They spent their first year after signing to iconic label Creation rubbing shoulders with like-minded bands like Lush, Blur and Swervedriver before releasing their Holding Our Breath EP, which paved the way for their debut album Just for a Day in 1991. The record soared into the indie Top 10 but the shoegaze sound was beginning to fall out of favour, with the dawn of Britpop close behind.
Their three albums, including Brian Eno produced Souvlaki and their third record Pygmalion, are now counted as classics and over the last couple of decades, tracks like 'Morningrise' and 'Catch the Breeze' have garnered cult status among indie fans.
