How long have you both been in Nottingham?
We've been here for six glorious years.
Did your band start here? Your Wikipedia page says you started working together after moving to
Wiki has got it a little wrong by about 90 miles (give or take). We started in Coventry but since moved to
Nottingham for uni; no plans to move to the capital just yet! Nottingham is doing just fine for us.
It also says you are an indie rock band – are you?
Yes, more specifically: electronic, indie/rock, starry-eyed bedroom r ‘n’ b with a twist of techno and a
sprinkling of disdain.
What’s new in the world of Shelter Point?
We’re back in the studio. We moved back to the bedroom for a little while and it wasn't working, so
we’ve just moved into our new musical home. We’re also neighbours with Yazmin Lacey and the Wigflex
guys, too. Collab, bro?
Where was the last gig you played?
We played a bunch of shows in Amsterdam last month, all in one day. We were elevated to the top of
the A'DAM tower to showcase our music to a lovely crowd of Dutch fans and it was great.
You have an event coming up this Saturday at Rough Trade – how did you go from playing gigs to

of creating our own took our fancy, so Cadence was born,
