‘Crooked Shapes’ break out and release third single ‘Let It Go’

Crooked Shapes were born of a perfect storm in early 2018. Based in Reading, consisting of George Twydell (Vocals & Guitar), George Ives (Vocals & Bass) and Craig Carlaw (Drums).They spent much of 2018 working on new songs, new skills and new sounds, ready to launch with a bang in 2019. Debut EP “Fallout” is due out May 10th. ‘Let it go’ is their latest single which showcases an edgier side to the band. The video was filmed in famous Reading venue ‘Purple Turtle’ and captures the theme of the song perfectly.

Here’s what front man George Twydell has to say about the release:

Let It Go is a song written about getting past your insecurities, coming to your senses and breaking out of your own shell which you have trapped yourself in which has dragged you down and driven you mad. Seeing that there is really nothing holding you back from stepping forward and achieving more apart from your own self doubt (me singing is for example).

The video is supposed to depict that trapped feeling with being in the cell trapped behind the bars, and feeling all those emotions getting to you whilst you are stuck there.

LET IT GO! Let go of your fear, let go of your self doubt, let go of your built up anger and frustration you have piled on yourself.

Catch the show live, loud and crooked across the UK very soon!

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
