“Light me in the palm of your heart’s hand. You hated me at that moment, didn’t you. I loved you more, in that instance. You’re mine Mandy. You’re my one and only. Don’t hate me. You are my everything.”
The California dream, bedroom pop-dom of the new single ‘In French’ is a tale of tragedy. Could have been the teen angst, mistrusted all along from the moment the two laid eyes. It was brilliant. There were sparks. There was a procession of unimaginable acidic emotional nervousness. And Shapes In Calgary is the antidote, helping us assimilate the 80’s ‘Better Off Dead’ heart-throb disappointments into magnificent pop statements.
The song is a floating dream, within a cloudy dream.
Shapes In Calgary is Gary and Alyssa Atturio. For this new EP, they collaborated with producer Nick Krill (Spinto Band, Teen Men), whom Gary met last year through playing with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and mix engineer Chris Cubeta.
Shapes in Calgary will release their forthcoming new EP this spring.
Can’t wait, actually.
