"Shelter" is the fourth album by contemporary shoegazers Alcest, the destination of a long creative musical journey into vast new territories.
More than ever, the French outfit, consisting of mastermind and multi-instrumentalist Neige and drummer Winterhalter, embraces the dreamy guitar textures of shoegaze and blends it with the sweetness of british band Cocteau Twins- dream pop pioneers of the mid to late 80's era, epic, soundtrack-like melodies and progressive song structures.
The album which features guest appearances from Slowdive's Neil Halstead (lead vocals on the song "Away") and Amiina's strings sections was recorded at Sundlaugin Studio, Iceland, with Sigur Ros producer Birgir Jon Birgisson who masterfully gave "Shelter" its light and ethereal sound.
