Shapes and Sizes
Shapes and Sizes
|Origin||Victoria, British Columbia, Canada|
Shapes and sizes came together in Victoria and self-released their self-titled first album in early 2006. The band signed with New York record label Asthmatic Kitty and became the only Canadian band on its roster. The label reissued the band's album in July 2006.
In January 2007, the band released a split 7" with The Weird Weeds as part of Asthmatic Kitty's new split 7" series, "Unusual Animals". The band's second full-length album, Split Lips, Winning Hips, A Shiner, was released in May 2007.
By 2009, Shapes and Sizes had moved to Montreal, and performed there as part of the 2009 Pop Montreal festival. The band released their third album Candle to Your Eyes in August, 2010. The album contained an eclectic collection of rock styles, partly because there are two lead singers with dissimilar voices. In the fall that year the album appeared on the !Earshot National Top 50 Chart.
