One of Britain’s finest songwriters, Slowdive and Mojave 3 man Neil Halstead has eked out a solo career on a trio of incredible record marked by skill, sensitivity and invention.
As the primary creative force behind one of the most underrated bands of the nineties, Halstead is responsible for composing one of that decades best albums too, the staggeringly sublime Souvlaki.
His solo work isn’t out of character with Slowdive’s sound – Halstead’s ability to wring a mood, a feeling, a setting from a guitar and a lyric is undisputed and last year’s Palindrome Hunches was his most enchanting release to date.
We met Neil earlier this week for a session take on one of that record’s best cuts, ‘Tied to You’. Watch it above.
