SLOWDIVE live in Italy for two concerts (Info & Tickets)

Music news

SLOWDIVE will be live in Italy for two scheduled concerts: Wednesday 31 January at Alcatraz in Milan and Friday 2 February at Estragon in Bologna.

A great and long-awaited return to Italy, a few months after the release of the new album “Everything Is Alive” (READ THE REVIEW)

Born in Reading, England in 1989, the band founded by Rachel Goswell (guitar and vocals) and Neil Halstead (guitar and vocals), guitarist Christian Savill, bassist Nick Chaplin and drummer Simon Scott, is considered among the main exponents of shoegaze genre. Having disbanded in 1995 and then reunited in 2014 with five albums, two collections and five EPs to their credit, they have defined a piece of history of British rock music and beyond.

Everything Is Alive was released on September 1, 2023 on the Dead Oceans label, preceded by the single alife and kisses, whose video clip was shot in Naples.

A heartfelt tribute to Rachel Goswell’s mother and drummer Simon Scott’s father, both of whom passed away in 2020, the new album is a sonic exploration of life and hope, reflecting the profound personal transitions experienced by the band members. Spanning psychedelic soundscapes, pulsating 80s electronic elements and John Cale-inspired journeys, it immediately presents itself as something made for the future.

“Everything Is Alive is full of experience, but every note is balanced, wise and necessarily inclined towards hope. Its unique alchemy subtly embodies sadness and gratitude, grounding and elevation.” Rachel Goswell said about the new record.

It wouldn’t be right to make a really dark record right now. The album is quite eclectic emotionally, but has a feeling of hope,” adds Neil Halstead.
