About Bent Shapes

Boston indie quartet Bent Shapes first began releasing music in 2009 under the name Girlfriends. Led by singer/guitarist Ben Potrykus and drummer Andy Sadoway, their melodic and hyper-literate post-punk echoed classic East Coast bands like the Feelies and the Modern Lovers. After a handful of small indie releases and accolades for their ferocious gigs, they rebranded themselves as Bent Shapes in 2012 and released a compilation of their Girlfriends-era material called Cull Shorts. A deal with Father/Daughter Records brought the release of their first proper LP, 2013's Feels Weird. The album garnered plenty of acclaim and they were soon sharing the stage with acts like Ted Leo, Fucked Up, and the Bats. The addition of guitarist Luke Brandfon and bassist Jenny Mudarri preceded their follow-up, as did a switch to Slumberland Records. Recorded and produced by Elio DeLuca (Titus Andronicus), Bent Shapes' sophomore effort, Wolves of Want, arrived in early 2016. ~ Timothy Monger
