Cover of Twice Upon a Time: The Singles

From Twice Upon a Time: The Singles and 5 other releases

“Slowdive” is a song written, produced and recorded by English rock band Siouxsie & the Banshees in 1982. It was released as the first single from the band’s fifth album A Kiss in the Dreamhouse.

The album (and this single) was representative of Siouxsie & the Banshees more elaborate and experimental musical direction at the time. The overtones of the song were accentuated by a string section, including violins and a cello. Percussionist Budgie also plays harmonica on this track.

“Slowdive” just missed becoming a top-forty hit, peaking at number forty-one in the UK singles chart.

It was covered by LCD Soundsystem in January 2005 for a XFM radio session and was later released as the B-side of their Disco Infiltrator single.
