Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell has teamed up with her new husband Steve Clarke to form the new band ‘The Soft Cavalry’.
Goswell, who met Clarke will touring Slowdive’s 2014 reunion tour dates, married four years later and have now decided to join forces on a creative front.
“I’d always had ideas but never felt that anything I had to say was worthy of anyone’s attention, let alone my own,” Clarke said in a press release. “I wish that I could have done this fifteen years ago but, in reality, I simply couldn’t have. But I’m not one to overly wallow. I’d rather plough the various levels of confusion into songs.”
The band will release their self-titled debut album on July 5th via Bella Union and, for now, share their first track ‘Dive’.
