Slowdive Releases New Single "alife" From New Album 'everything is alive' Today

Slowdive releases their highly anticipated new album, 'everything is alive', via Dead Oceans. Today, the shoegaze legends drop their final single/video, "alife".

On the “infectious, gorgeous” (Stereogum) “alife,” Rachel Goswell’s voice is drenched in reverb and longing as she sings, “Two lives are hard lives with you,” complementing the vocal delivery of Neil Halstead throughout. Paste describes it in their new Cover Story as “Goswell’s (likely) greatest harmony performance in 30 years.”

Of “alife,” Halstead adds: “‘alife’ is one of the first tunes we finished for the record. Shawn Everett did a really nice job with the mix. We tried so many times to figure out a good mix by ourselves and couldn’t do it . . . it sort of had us beaten until Shawn stepped in. We decided if he could handle that one he could probably do the whole record. Our friend Jake Nelson did a really nice animation for this song; it takes some of the imagery from the artwork and digs a little deeper into that."
