Bent Shapes is Andy Sadoway, Ben Potrykus, and Supriya Gunda. Since forming under the name Girlfriends in 2009, the Boston trio has released a string of cassettes and 7”s full of fuzzy garage, frantic jangle pop, and scrappy post-punk on various labels (including band members’ own imprints). The band’s myriad of influences reference touchstones like Josef K, The Feelies, Jonathan Richman, Billy Childish, and The Fall.
“…it’s hard to bemoan Bent Shapes’ knack for marrying lyricism and melody” – Pitchfork
“… tight, hummable melodies to ramshackle garage sprawl” – Spin Magazine
“…an essential no-filler record with some of the best indie pop songwriting you’ll hear all year” –Stereogum
