Be swept away in an imaginative take on the folk idiom. Vanishing Shapes fuses old sounds of traditional folk music with modern influences such as electronic dance, progressive rock and classical, uniquely traversing from large cinematic soundscapes to twisted dance tunes all on acoustic instruments.
Endearingly dubbed ‘fairy music’ during an early tour, their unique sound has found a home in some unexpected places, receiving support from Newcastle’s warehouse scenes as well as sharing the stage with diverse national and international acts including Afenginn, The Crooked Fiddle Band and Asta. The band has kept themselves busy touring independently, releasing an EP and full length album and playing festivals including St Albans Folk Festival, Wollombi Music Festival and Regrowth Festival.
Highly energetic live performances are a bit humorous whilst bouncing from being playful, harrowing and ethereal creating moments that appeal to urges of dance, crying and escaping to other dimensions.
