So at first glance, the Washington D.C. trio, SHAED, was catching nothing but shade by radio plays and charts...which sounds so crazy to everybody. Not only is their music different, but the band has such a fun personality.
Anyways, given time, the song was caught by a second wind and used by Apple for a new MacBook Air commercial that you may have seen on TV. After that, their single Trampoline started to rise and rise and eventually, BLAM! Trampoline is #1 on Alternative Radio.
Riff Magazine talked with the band and Max Ernst (short hair) who plays keyboard, drums, guitar, and backup vocals, told Riff...
“I think [we’re] always kind of most excited about the song we’re working on at the time, as well. … When we made ‘Trampoline’ it wasn’t like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is gonna be the song.’ It was just kind of another song. We thought it was really cool but we just kind of moved onto the next one. And then the commercial happened, and that gave the song a whole other life itself."
Taking a closer look at the band, you might notice the two guys look very similar. Well that's because they're identical twins. Max Ernst has short hair, and his brother Spencer has the long hair. And hold on, it goes deeper than that. Chelsea Lee (lead vocalist and goofy one in the gifs) is their sister in law.
So as bands say they're like family, SHAED really is family. We believe that chemistry might be the reason for the bangers that come out of this band.
