Halstead once mentioned Slowdive wanted "to create something big and beautiful and sort of timeless". According to their dedicated fan base and the huge hype surrounding the release of their first album in 22 years, Slowdive has accomplished just that.

Blue Day is a compilation album by English shoegaze band Slowdive. It was originally released in 1992 and compiles the first three Slowdive EPs: Slowdive (missing the track "Avalyn II"), Morningrise (in its entirety), and Holding Our Breath (missing the Syd Barrett cover "Golden Hair" as well as "Catch the Breeze", which appeared on their first full-length Just for a Day [MOVLP354]).
The English shoegaze band Slowdive formed in 1989. The production on Slowdive's debut resulted in the full-length album Just for a Day, released in 1991.
When Slowdive disbanded in 1995 music fans widely associated it with the demise of the shoegaze genre. Their last sign of life was Pygmalion (before they reunited in 2014) and it was, after Just For A Day and Souvlaki a totally different and more abstract album.
The English shoegaze band Slowdive formed in 1989 and primarily consisted of Nick Chaplin (bass), Rachel Goswell (vocals, guitar), Christian Savill (guitar) and the band's primary songwriter Neil Halstead (vocals, guitar). Souvlaki is Slowdive's second studio album, originally released in 1993.
