Ride is a British alternative rock band formed in Oxford in 1988. They emerged as a prominent figure in the shoegaze scene of the late 1980s and early 1990s alongside bands like My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive.
Their music is characterised by swirling layers of guitar effects, ethereal vocals, and dreamy melodies. Ride achieved critical acclaim with their debut album Nowhere in 1990, which showcased their signature sound. Over the years, they've experimented with different styles while maintaining their distinctive sonic palette. Despite disbanding in the mid-90s, Ride reunited in 2014 and have since released new music, captivating old and new fans alike.

Always roll my eyes a bit when politics is imposed on what I’m actually there for - the music.
The very muted response of the F**k Boris was, in retrospect, a consequence of many in the audience having gone out and voted for him.
Anyway, aside of that minor irritation, the performance was very tight and the band clearly still has plenty of legs.

As awesome as ever!
I've loved this band since I bought the Vapour Trail ro when I was 16. I was lucky enough to see them at Derby Assembly Rooms (1992) when they released Going Blank Again, then again last year (2018) at Sheffield Plug. So, last night at Sheffield Foundry (2019) I saw them for a third time. As always, they were amazing. I will definitely go and see them again on future tours, and recommend them to anyone who likes a bit of shoe gazing. Have a listen to tracks like Drive Blind, Taste or Going Blank Again and you'll know what I'm talking about!
