Bent Shapes formed in 2009 under the original name Girlfriends and quickly established themselves on the Boston indie scene with their frequent live performances. After a name change in 2012, they released their debut LP Feels Weird, introducing the rest of the country to their brand of blissfully jaded pop rock.
Currently made up of frontman Ben Potrykus, guitarist Luke Brandfon, bassist Jenny Mudarri, and drummer Andy Sadoway, the group has undergone a few lineup changes over the years, but core members Ben and Andy have kept the band together and afloat over choppy waters.
Bent Shapes mix satisfying chord progressions and infectious melodies into a sloppily charming blend of 60’s influenced guitar pop. They play the kind of indie rock that coyly assembles old parts in such a way that you can’t help hearing it as new.
