Slowdive : kisses

Slowdive has revealed details of their forthcoming album, everything is alive, set to be released on 1st September by Dead Oceans. They have also released a captivating video for the lead single, “kisses.” This track radiates with wistful beauty and a spirit of embracing adventure. It serves as the perfect soundtrack for a summer of romance and self-discovery, as the captivating voices of vocalists and guitarists Rachel Goswell and Neil Halstead intertwine beautifully.

And the spirit of the song is captured perfectly in their new Naples-by-night video directed by Noel Paul. In the “Kisses” video, a dreamlike portrait of a Neapolitan teen giving rides to everyone he knows, Paul says, “If this video evokes emotion, it’s largely due to our excellent cast. In particular, Charlie and Claudia, two courageous and beautiful souls who threw themselves into their roles and set a tone of fearless vulnerability.

In addition, the band is embarking on a North American, UK, and Ireland tour. This comes six years after their return and coincides with their first-ever Glastonbury performance, taking place on Sunday, 25th June, at the Woodsies Stage.
