Work is under way...

Slowdive have kicked off work on their new album.

The shoegaze group reformed for a flurry of live shows, before the re-union took on a quality of its own.

A self-titled album followed in 2017, before the band took a step back, with various solo projects emerging.

Rachel Goswell joined the Minor Victories project, before contributing to The Soft Calvary. Neil Halstead, meanwhile, has been busy as a producer, most recently with Californian harpist Mary Lattimore.

Sneaking out photos from the studio, it seems that Slowdive have begun work on their fifth album.

Snaps have been shared across the band's socials, using the hashtag LP5.

No word yet on a timescale, but it's still pretty exciting.
