Experimental band Fake Shape debut strong new single “Black Bear”


Fake Shape is an experimental band from Hamilton, Ontario. They settle in between a melange of eclectic influences—a little indie rock, some solid jazz flow, and even the odd twang in the vocals. Chester Edington (guitar and vocals) states that “through actively practicing collaboration we [David Baldry (keyboard, synthesizer and flugelhorn), Olivia Brown (bass and vocals), and Mackenzie Read (drums)] are able to write better music.” The resulting music works together as a whole, not in one voice or instrument on the surface, but in juicy layers of well mixed and deeply felt meaningful music. 


Their latest release is “Black Bear,one of their favourite songs to play live, so Fake Shape sought to capture that same level of intensity and energy. Temperamental and expansive, they wanted to bring attention to the space in between the lyrics and allow the sound to develop. Baldry’s trumpet solo shines, supported by Brown and Read’s instrumentals, and is further complemented by an undercurrent of super fuzzed feedback which creates an uneasy kind of crazed feeling.
