Ride are making a return thanks to the shoegaze movement: and their resurrection has been eagerly awaited. 21 years after Tarantula, their third album which was not long remembered, the Oxford group are relaunching an act which was very popular across the Channel in the 1990s. With Weather Diaries, Mark Gardener and Andy Bell have not lost their touch for writing, but they have eliminated a number of purely shoegaze options. The Ride of 2017 is now a lot more pop and plays with guitars and synths, keeping their eyes on choruses that hit the mark, and melodies that stick around. Even if British pop won’t quite be rocked to its foundations by this fourth album, it is hard to contain one’s pleasure at this comeback.
