Shelter Point

Shelter Point hint to the sounds of Boards of Canada and Mount Kimbie but make a tactile, moving electronica all their own - we get to grips with them in our 30 seconds…

Shelter Point are Liam Arnold and Robin Hearn, a Nottingham based two-piece that have developed a tactile, shapeshifting electronica sound all their own making.

After releasing their debut Forever for Now EP via Hotflush recordings, the pair have sneaked out a slim, steady handful of moments, evolving their synthetic melancholy into ever-changing shapes.

While they busy themselves with pulling together a debut record, the likes of Glass Into Gold, Pale and new tune, Without A Light, have helped win fans in the form of Annie Mac and Zane Lowe. They’ve also toured with the likes of Jack Garrett as well as performing well received sets at Bestival and the Great Escape.

Hinting towards the likes of Boards of Canada or James Blake at his wooziest, the duo are continuing to push their downtempo, broody sounds forward, recently via collaborating with Grammy winning Steve Dub, who has worked with Leftfield, Prodigy and New Order. Check out their new music below and get to know them a little better in our 30 seconds...

First started writing music because…
We had nothing better to do growing up in Coventry.

We have been making music since…
The day Amy Winehouse died.

Our music is…
Post-emotion bass heavy hyper-soul.

You'll like our music if you listen to...
Future-skiffle gluten free psy-swing.

Our favourite venue is…
McDonald's (actually, The Bodega in Nottingham).

Music is important because…
We have no other transferable skills.

Our biggest inspiration is…
Emilia Clarke.

Our dream collaboration would be…
Thom Yorke and Tony Bennet.

To try us out, listen to my song…
Without A Light.

If we weren’t making music we’d be…
Still working in Domino's and Morrison’s.

In 10 years’ time we want to be...
Hopefully about to release our debut album!
