Sound & Shape
Sound & Shape
“We don’t have to buy what they sell.” It’s a lyric from Sound & Shape’s new EP but it could also be seen as an ethos the band has clung to for the length of its career. Starting off in a time where Rock And Roll was seen as almost passé and practically unmarketable, the band saw a point on the horizon and has worked tirelessly to reach it. An artistic vision based on both brutal honesty are theatric artifice, Sound & Shape’s body of work speaks as a testament to the belief in the transformative power of music, Rock and Roll specifically.

A mostly straight line can be drawn from the band’s ambitious debut record, “Where Machines End Their Lives,” through the “Love Electric” EP, to the more straightforward “Now Comes The Mystery” EP and the second proper album, “Hourglass.” With their third full length, 2014’s “Bad Actors” they went further afield in all directions and reached new personal songwriting heights. Now they’ve come to “Peasants,” a 5 song EP that takes the band’s sound and again elevates it to new levels. Tightly packed musically, with lyrics relatable on both a personal and socio-political level, this EP is the next natural step in their evolution.

After having been a 3 piece since their first album, Ryan Caudle (guitar, vocals), Gaines Cooper (bass, vocals) and Grant Bramlett (drums) brought in Chris Hurst on second guitar to fill out the sound both live and in the studio. With “Peasants” ready for release, the horizon looks bright and the road ahead looks long and exciting.
