About The Band
Shelter came to the forefront of the music scene in 2014 with the release of ‘iPop’, their collaborative album with Erasure’s legendary frontman Andy Bell. Reaching No 47 on the iTunes pop album charts, the first single ‘Beautiful’ made radio playlists across Europe. That same year, Shelter supported Erasure on their ‘Violet Flame Tour’, performing in front of 35,000 people across the UK, Germany and Denmark, showcasing their stunning live show of retro/contemporary electro pop. Since then, they have gone on to release 2 successful electro albums: ‘emerge’ and ‘ascend’.
‘Emerge’ in 2014, saw the band work alongside Frankmusik on the track ‘with u’ which was later released as a single and remixed by Grammy award winning remixer Dave Aude (Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé), reaching No 9 in the UK Commercial Pop Club Charts. 2016 saw Shelter release ‘Ascend’; described by GNI Mag as ‘stunning’ and voted #3 in Modern Synthpop’s albums of 2016, ‘Ascend’ boasts 11 contemporary electro pop tracks featuring the singles ‘In The Dark, ‘This Must Be Love’, ‘Figaro’ and ‘Ascend’ which was later remixed by GRN (Hurts, Depeche Mode).
Shelter have worked hard to continue refining their electronic sound during the development of 'Soar'. As unsigned independent artists they control and undertake all stages of the process from songwriting, recording, production and mastering. The debut tracks from 'Soar' include 'Exhale' voted No1 in Niki Tylers Unsigned Pop Chart 2017 and 'Karma' voted No 2 most aired track in 2017 by Artefaktor Radio.
