Love Is Pointless: NEVE SLIDE DOWN to Disband

I was in a mood even before the tweet from Viz Major:

The real link is here. There’s no explanation yet, just the obligatory apology. Continue reading

When I Said That I Wanted Beatdown Idols, NEVE SLIDE DOWN, This Isn’t Quite What I Had in Mind

I’m a friggin’ doofus and missed the latest from we-B’s surging up-and-comers NEVE SLIDE DOWN this morning until reminded by our good friend Pure Idol Heart, and of course then immediately had to get into a meeting and do actual day job work instead of something enjoyable like a new NEVE SLIDE DOWN video.

We’re Going to Get a New NEVE SLIDE DOWN Single

In case you missed a very cool note on a very busy Friday:

Between ZENITH and “Leaving”, what is it about we-B groups teasing their own demise?

This is actually yesterday’s news at this point, but I wanted to wait a minute to see if they were going to put out any snips, and they didn’t, so here we are! Continue reading

Hey Sure, Let’s Celebrate NEVE SLIDE DOWN’s Birthday with Them

Did you guys know that PassCode’s sisters in NEVE SLIDE DOWN had their debut a year ago yesterday? I sure as hell didn’t, because their first videos didn’t drop until September IIRC, but I’m also not mad about it, what with that whole sure-let’s-look-at-NEVE-SLIDE-DOWN thing.

Anyway, the news, and the trailer doodad:

NEVE SLIDE DOWN Would Like for You To Pay Attention, Please

Well well well! There were a number of new videos that I thought might make their way out to the world this morning, but NEVE SLIDE DOWN’s “Mellow dawn” was not one of them. I just found out that the single even existed! But now here we are, and … yeah, considering that I first saw this as the first weak-ass rays of sunlight were entering my world, the whole “mellow” and “dawn” thing was a fittingly inaccurate tease.

You’re awake now

Oh Neat, NEVE SLIDE DOWN’s Still Churning

I could think of no finer verb for describing NEVE SLIDE DOWN and their we’re-obviously-PassCode’s-sister-group-and-also-pretty-heavy-when-we-want sound

This one from John popped up in the ol’ feed yesterday, and I didn’t want to let it get away; I enjoyed their digital releases out of the gate, and Garry wouldn’t stop talking about how great their EP was, so it stands to reason that NSD bears a closer look — one that I’ve been a little lazy on taking because reasons.

Anyway, John with the details, but unfortunately not why their current look is BiSH-meets-Especia:

Details on the first single from NEVE SLIDE DOWN have been released and not to far from release date either. Back on February 25th they announced the single but we have not had much information since then. Now we pretty much know it all. It is named Mellow dawn and will be three tracks in […]

A NEVE SLIDE DOWN Mini-Album, You Say?

Well that’s a nice surprise. Thanks, NEVE SLIDE DOWN! Via the PassCode Facebook group, it’s the little sister unit stepping out a little bit now that people are starting to recover from the “MISS UNLIMITED” release and are jonesing for even more poppy digital hardcore in their lives:

That’s Not My Real Name is such a silly title. Who goes around using a pseudonym all the time, anyway?

There’s even stuff that we haven’t heard before in there! With such highly topical titles as “Selfie”! I kid because I want to love. Continue reading

You Might Like NEVE SLIDE DOWN’s 4th Track the Most

It was just yesterday and the release of “WENDY” on the NSD website that I wondered if a record of some sort might be coming soon; now I’m wondering if NEVE SLIDE DOWN is just going to keep releasing until a full album’s worth of material is online.

NEVE SLIDE DOWN Snuck a Third Song by Us: Check out ‘WENDY’

A lot of excitement has been built up by PassCode sister group NEVE SLIDE DOWN since they released MVs for two very cool songs, “Let me out” and “City Lights” in the span of a week. But they weren’t done messing with our heads, apparently:

H/t to @idolisshit for the tip!
