Single Review – Slowdive – Star Roving 

Reading’s finest Shoegazers are back with their first new song in over two decades with ‘Star Roving’. Now signed on to Dead Oceans, vocalalist and guitarist Rachel Goswell confirmed that an album was in the works and this single is the first product of it. Stylistically, it’s their sound and it still rings out with an energy that dozens of young Shoegaze groups fail to pick up on. Shoegaze is a hazy and washed out style, but who told this generation that it was slow and indistinguishable from its constituent parts? This song has a driving rhythm which only highlights the quality of the delivery. Certainly nothing to set the world alight, but a pleasant blast from the past.
