January Musical Artist of the Month – Sails
In 2022 they released Shapes and Shades, the final product of the songs that persisted over the years. It contains the influences of many local bands and experiences, especially the vibrant rock scene surrounding the Happy Dog and the authentic eclecticism of the now-defunct Now That’s Class. Shapes and Shades also represents the millennial story, a grappling with that obscure threshold of adulthood that both perplexes and demystifies identity. The mixture of songs on Shapes and Shades reflects the many dimensions of life that intersect and conflict as one grows, the domains of the ego that clash violently as they oppose one another.
