I wish that I had all of the right words to put this album into perspective for you. Dark, dreamy, ambient, poetic, romantic, melodic, peaceful……………………….. It’s a start anyhow.
Alex Shelter is a French singer/songwriter, but apparently got his start in music when he spent several years living in the U.S. I honestly don’t see much ‘American Music’ influence. The only comparison that comes to mind is that of the late, great Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse, Dark Night Of The Soul) who had a way, not only with words, but made you feel what he wanted you to feel, on any end of the spectrum.
This will go down as one of the best independent record releases of this year, and I believe that if Shelter continues to make music and take the proper steps of sharing it, he will one day be a very, very well-known artist. I can’t wait to hear more. Check out Alex Shelter’s new record In Peace.
