Mojave 3 are a British band, consisting of Neil Halstead, Rachel Goswell, Simon Rowe, Alan Forrester, and Ian McCutcheon. Goswell, Halstead and McCutcheon previously played in Thames Valley shoegazing band Slowdive.

The band initially existed as a trio, consisting of Halstead, Goswell, and McCutcheon. After Slowdive were dropped by Creation Records, the trio decided to change musical direction to a dream pop/country rock/folk music style, and were signed by 4AD Records. They took on the new name "Mojave," following a suggestion by Wendy Fonarow,[1][2] but upon the discovery of another band already using the name, the "3" was added (in reference to the group's three members). Rowe (formerly of Chapterhouse) and Forrester joined shortly after the release of their first album.

Both Halstead (the main songwriter for the band) and Goswell have released solo albums, also for 4AD. McCutcheon founded and is currently playing with his band called The Loose Salute who are signed to Heavenly Records and Graveface Records.

In 2006, Mojave 3 did a Take-Away Show session with Vincent Moon. According to Halstead, the band is on hiatus as of 2008, but they are planning to release at least one more album in the future.

Despite still being listed as "on hiatus", the band returned to playing live in 2011, including gigs supporting Band of Horses .[3] During a radio interview on Israeli radio station Kol HaCampus on May 7, 2011, Halstead said the band are working on new material, and may be recording during the summer.[4]
