Shapes In Calgary began as a collaboration between songwriter Alyssa Ciorciari and producer Gary Atturio in their tiny home recording studio. The duo’s goal was to make simple, small-sounding pop music using only a drum machine and a 1980’s synth, and the restrictive nature of the project forced both musicians to focus on their songwriting and arranging abilities. After completing their first batch of demos, Alyssa and Gary shared the fully formed songs with close friends and collaborators, drummer Tim McCoy (Darwin Deez, Field Mouse) and guitarist Billy Libby, who’ve since joined the band and fleshed out the recordings. The Shapes In Calgary EP is out now.
