Songcrush: Slowdive - Sugar For The Pill

From Songcrush

It shouldn’t be that a band should be this good, twenty two years after they last released a recording. English shoegaze band Slowdive has a new album coming in May, and they’ve not lost any of their dreamy, woozy appeal.

Rich, clear guitar chimes begin this warm and enveloping song, with a simple undulating melody, and layers of guitar building an arc for the song. The maturation of Neil Halstead’s voice suits the song’s themes, of a long time love breaking down. One for the headphones.
