Patrick Coman & The Wrong Shapes with The Grownup Noise
June 18, 2014
Merging the rootsy barroom shuffle of Patrick Coman’s Oklahoma birthplace with the poetic intensity of traditional New England folk, this unique quintet has steadily become a force in the growing Americana scene in Coman’s adopted hometown of Boston and beyond. Rachel & Bo Barringer are the Wrong Shapes, a darkly intriguing male/female cello/guitar/vocal duo combining acoustic and electronic sounds with minimal, compelling songwriting.
Since releasing their self-titled debut in 2007, Boston's The Grownup Noise have evolved into a rousing indie- pop outfit, bridging the gap between americana and indie. Fast forward several years and various enriching personal pursuits, and the band is finally gearing up for its playful, poignant new LP, This Time with Feeling, set for release in late spring, 2011. Described by the Portland Press Herald (ME) as a combination of "smart lyrics with keen vocals," adding that "its songs are doses of melodic sunshine," The Grownup Noise has maintained and built on its fan base during the intervening years through a savvy combination of eccentric pop songs, natural talent and determination.
