About Shapes Stars Make
“Shapes Stars Make sound exactly the way you would expect a band with this name to sound like. The music is airy with gentle flickers that light up small and large. The music consumes the listener like the lights in the night sky and lets you dream out loud.” (AbsolutePunk)
Shapes Stars Make crafts emotionally-rich indie rock, heavy in post-rock influence. The band’s songs are well-crafted harmonies that balance beautifully layered melodies and lyrics. In January 2008, Shapes Stars Make recorded their debut album with Producer/Engineer John Congleton (The Appleseed Cast, Explosions in the Sky, This Will Destroy You). The self-titled album was recorded and mixed during six rainy and cold days in Texas.
“Evident on the band’s debut EP is a sound unique in its atypical condensation of genre techniques. Where as most indie bands experimenting with post-rock textures tend to develop around mellow, restrained build-ups and finishes, Shapes Stars Make represents six tracks equally gentle and melodic as they are massive in volume.”(The Neo-Surrealist Movement)
Shapes Stars Make released their album on Dreamt Music January 19th, 2010.
