Landshapes was a British band formed in 2012, known primarily for its effects-heavy psychedelic alternative rock. They released their debut full-length album Rambutan on indie record label Bella Union in 2013 and their second album, Heyoon, in May 2015. The group consisted of Heloise Tunstall-Behrens (vocals, violin) and Luisa Gerstein (vocals, ukulele) with Jemma Freeman (guitar, vocals) and Dan Blackett (drums, vocals). They were formerly known as Lulu and the Lampshades.
