Slowdive's Neil Halstead Forms Black Hearted Brother, Reveals Slumberland Debut
Published Sep 19, 2013Best known for his work in Slowdive and Mojave 3, Neil Halstead has started a new project called Black Hearted Brother, where he's joined by Mark Van Hoen (of Locust and Seefeel) and Nick Holton. The group have already prepared their debut full-length.
The record's called Stars Are Our Home, and features 12 new songs from the unsurprisingly spacy shoegaze project. In a press release, Halstead describes the album as "a lot of very long and indulgent space rawk."
He expands on that statement by saying, "The idea was to just make a record that was in some ways 'unedited.' To not worry about a particular sound or style, but to just go with the flow. We all make quite focused records individually so, as Mark says, it's our 'guilty pleasures' album."
Slumberland will issue Stars Are Our Home on October 22. Check out "(I Don't Mean To) Wonder" below.
