Slowdive Share “Sugar For The Pill (Avalon Emerson’s Gilded Escalation)” Announce Release Day Listening Parties

Have you seen peppermint being made before? The hot, elastic sugary material is stretched out further than you’d think possible then folded back in on itself repeatedly. That’s how they get the swirl. Today Slowdive have shared “Sugar For The Pill (Avalon Emerson’s Gilded Escalation)” – a remix that embodies this process quite nicely. Warm and familiar, the quickly beloved track takes on a new shape at the deft hands of Avalon Emerson. With a runtime of almost 10 minutes, it’s quite the form of escapism.

Listen to “Sugar For The Pill (Avalon Emerson’s Gilded Escalation)”

We’re only a few days away from the release of Slowdive’s first record in 22 years. (We keep saying it because we can hardly believe it ourselves). That’s right, this Friday, May 5th Slowdive will be out in the world and at your fingertips. In celebration of this momentous occasion, approximately 50 stores across North America are hosting listening parties. They’ll have buttons, stickers, slipmats & more exclusives. Interested? Check out the map below to find one near you.

If you’re out at these events or simply picking up a copy from your local record shop, we’d love to see your photos! Use #Slowdive or tag us @deadoceans on Instagram.
