More Info:'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 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 also features a guest appearance from Slowdive's Neil Halstead, was recorded at Sundlaugin Studio, Iceland, with Sigur Rós producer Birgir Jón Birgisson who masterfully gave "Shelter" its light and ethereal sound. The deluxe edition includes a second disc featuring the track 'Into The Waves' and is packaged with a 48 page hardcover book.
