History[change | change source]

In 1990 Slowdive released their first EP Slowdive.

In September 1991 the band's first album Just for a Day was released.

The band wrote to Brian Eno to ask him to produce their second album. Eno said that he liked Slowdive's music but wanted to make music with them rather than produce their album. In 1993 Slowdive released their second album Souvlaki. Pitchfork gave the album a score of 7 out of 10.[1] They then released two extended plays, 5 EP and 5 EP (In Mind Remixes).

In 1995 the band released their last album Pygmalion. Then they broke up.

In 2014 Slowdive got back together to play the 2014 Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona from May 29-31.
