hmv's Next Big Thing... #132 The Shelters

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Tom Petty approved pop mavericks The Shelters...


Who Are They?

Formed in 2015 in Los Angeles, The Shelters are Chase Simpson, Josh Jove, Sebastian Harris and Jacob Pillot. They'd not been a going concern for too long when they caught the attention of Tom Petty, who ended up lending the band his studio and co-producing their self-titled debut album. Quite the stamp of approval!


Who Do They Sound Like?

Take the spark and wild experimentalism of MGMT, the classic pop of Smile-era Beach Boys and add some vintage Fleetwood Mac and you've got The Shelters. 


Why Should I Be Excited?

Swirly melodies and catchy choruses, every song is a freewheeling hippy dippy delight. 


Can I Hear Something?

You most certainly can, their new single 'Gold' is below for you and you can check out their debut album here in hmv's digital store.
