In these troubled times, blackgaze pioneers ALCEST shine a little light into the dark with their otherworldly sound. Labelled as innovators of surreal genre-mixing shoegaze and black metal, the French duo have established themselves as a forerunner of their own style of music that draws the listener into a dreamy soundscape, achieving them over 42 million streams worldwide.
Their latest studio album Spiritual Instinct saw the light of day in 2019 via Nuclear Blast. The record was supported by a massive European tour which included several sold-out shows. With Spiritual Instinct, Neige and Winterhalter melded both the heavy and lighter aspects of the band, and today, ALCEST present a brand-new face to their art with a cinematic instrumental acoustic version of their hit single ‘Protection’.
