5 is the fifth extended play by English rock band Slowdive, originally released in November 1993 via Creation Records.

Slowdive are an English rock band that formed in Reading, Berkshire in 1989. The band consists of Rachel Goswell on vocals and guitar, Simon Scott on drums, Neil Halstead on vocals and guitar, Nick Chaplin on bass and Christian Savill on guitar. Several other drummers also briefly played with the band, including Adrian Sell, Neil Carter and Ian McCutcheon. Halstead is the band's primary songwriter.

Goswell and Halstead had known each other since early childhood in Reading, Berkshire. Scott left in 1994 and when Savill and Chaplin left the band soon after the release of Pygmalion, the remaining members renamed the band Mojave 3. Slowdive reunited in 2014.

Their sound has been described as dream pop, shoegaze, indie rock and ambient, and they are regarded as one of the key shoegaze bands that emerged in the UK from the late 1980s.

Slowdive's 5 extended play was released in 1993 and contains four songs, three of which are instrumental. Neil Halstead had a blast experimenting with electronic beats. The instrumental tracks on this EP are all accompanied by a solid beat.

Slowdive once again succeed beautifully in producing tones that leave you numb as to how you should feel. There is an unmistakably euphoric edge to it, something heavenly, something convincing, something that takes you to places where everything is more beautiful, more colourful.

5 captures a brief moment of Slowdive's journey - not quite like anything they did before it and not quite like anything after it, though it does have elements of both Souvlaki and Pygmalion in there.

“In Mind”, “Good Day Sunshine”, “Missing You” and “Country Rain” are trippy, dreamy, spaced, melancholic and cinematic.

Overall an essential part of the history of one of the most influential acts of the late 20th century.

This rare and sought-after EP is now available as a limited edition of 4000 individually numbered copies on pink and purple marbled coloured vinyl. The jacket has a special deluxe “alubrush” finish. The package includes an insert with the Slowdive catalogue.
