Shoegaze greats Slowdive have recently been dropping hints that album number five is on the way.
The outfit have been sharing photos from in the studio, both on their official Instagram and that of vocalist Rachel Goswell, captioning them with the hashtag “#slowdivelp5”.
The first photo originally appeared on Goswell’s socials five days ago, featuring the band’s drumkit. It was followed by an image of Nick Chaplin on his bass, and most recently, Neil Halstead playing guitar.
