In 2013 we fell in love with Bent Shapes, and in 2016, our love was totally rekindled. "New Starts In Old Dominion" is the band's first single from Wolves of Want - out on March 11 through Slumberland Records.
It features that same signature breakneck pop, although for this go-round there's a significant amount of heart. The struggles of coming into your own, a desperation to overcome it all etched into the fiber of the single, and in the album as a whole. As the album's press release explains, "Wolves of Want is an album full of meditations on mental illness, the struggle to bring goodness into the world, and faith in humanity as a renewable resource." With the sounds and honesty of Bent Shapes as our guides, this world is certainly a lot better off.
