After reuniting in 2014 with a series of live shows, Slowdive are currently back in the studio recording a new album and hope to have it finished by July, the band’s Rachel Goswell revealed in an interview with Stereogum.
Rachel Goswell confirmed that the band have “a lot of songs,” which they’re in the process of recording. “The guys have been in the studio for the last couple of days doing some drum and bass tracks,” she said, adding “we did quite a lot of recording last year. It’s quite difficult because we’ve all got children and we all live in different parts of the country. As you get older, it is quite a challenge.”
The album is yet to be titled but will mark their first new material since 1995 album Pygmalion. Goswell is currently on tour with her other band, Minor Victories, which also takes in members of Editors and Mogwai.
Watch the band perform the slowcore classic ‘When The Sun Hits’ at London’s Village Underground as part of their first reunion show in 2014.
