Format:CD, Album, DigisleeveReleased:17 Jan 2014Style:Acoustic, Pop Rock, ShoegazeAlcest´s destination of a long musical journey´´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´´), Sweden´s Promise And The Monster's Billie Lindahl and Amiina´s strings sections was recorded at Sundlaugin Studio, Iceland, with Sigur Rós producer Birgir Jón Birgisson who masterfully gave ´´Shelter´´ its light and ethereal sound.Conceptually, the title of the album ´´Shelter´´ says it all. The record is about the concept of shelter as a safe place that allows everybody to escape reality for an instant, to reunite with what we really are, deep down. Neige´s own shelter turned out to be the sea, as well as the tracks of this album, all inspired by and dedicated to it.Track listing:1. Wings2. Opale3. La Nuit Marche Avec Moi4. Voix Sereines5.
