The Shelters
The Shelters released their debut LP in June 2016 via Warner Bros. Records, a
blast of Southern Californian rock and roll from a four-piece like they used
to make them, when the factory was still up and running. Co-produced by
Tom Petty, this album comes at you from behind, nothing you were
The Shelters had just banded together when Petty heard them and got a gut
feeling about what they could be. He gave the Shelters the keys to his home
studio and showed them a few things. Though mostly he left them alone,
Petty had enough sense to leave the gear powered up. Maybe they were
determined to show him he hadn’t made a mistake. Maybe they just liked the
way those old tube amps sounded. They seized the moment and got to
work, insistent on becoming a band. A real band.
One listen to their singles “Rebel Heart,” “Gold,” or any other of the ten
songs on their debut, and you’ll know they pulled it off. Led by the songs,
harmonies and twin-guitar sound of Chase Simpson and Josh Jove, and
powered by drummer Sebastian Harris’s and bassist Jacob Pillot’s groove
obsession, the band has put together a collection of recordings that have an
immediacy, an emotion, and a musical intelligence that suggests these boys
are beyond their years.
People are going to reference some of the great rock and roll bands of
yesterday and today. But this is no tribute show. The sounds they’ve made
seem to have been dragged from the vaults and forced to fit the present. It’s
all a beautiful reminder that rock and roll may have slipped out of view for
minute, but it’s still out there, alive in the hands of the ones who need it the
The Shelters are closing out a busy 2017 touring schedule which included
dates with Royal Blood, Kaleo, The Head and The and The Lumineers – plus
festivals such as Lollapalooza, Forecastle, British Summertime Hyde Park,
Spain’s Azkena festival and Poland’s Open’er Festival.
