Shapes and Sizes are a Canadian indie rock band from Victoria, British Columbia. There are four members — Nathan Gage, Caila Thompson-Hannant, Rory Seydel and John Crellin. After self-releasing their self-titled first album in early 2006, the band caught the attention of Sufjan Stevens' record label Asthmatic Kitty who later reissued the album in July 2006. They are the only Canadian band to be signed to Asthmatic Kitty.

In January 2007, the band released a split 7" with The Weird Weeds as part of Asthmatic Kitty's new split 7" series, "Unusual Animals". The band's second full-length album, Split Lips, Winning Hips, A Shiner, was released in May 2007.

Now based in Montreal, the band released their third album Candle to Your Eyes on August 3, 2010.[1]
