#349: Introducing...Shelter Point

In the last 12 months, the UK has seen a massive surge in the popularity of both ambient bands and artists, and whilst many will automatically assume it was London Grammar who pioneered the trend last year, the fact of the matter is they merely drew the public's attention to it. In their wake, a fertile milieu has flourished, affording similar, albeit smaller, bands a spotlight they might not have had before. Despite being a band for as long as the aforementioned London Grammar, and sharing similar, albeit darker, aesthetics, Nottingham's Shelter Point haven't enjoyed anywhere near the same level of mainstream success, but hopefully all that's about to change.
