Based in Washington, D.C., electro-pop trio SHAED balance effervescence and atmosphere. Consisting of lead singer Chelsea Lee and twin brother producers Max and Spencer Ernst, the group recently released their second EP, Melt, featuring "Trampoline", which after being chosen for Apple’s latest MacBook Air campaign, has launched the band into the international spotlight.
Way before “Melt,” before finding a house to live and record in, before tours with Bishop Briggs and Marian Hill, Spencer and Max started writing songs with Chelsea Lee in high school. Combining the brothers’ producing prowess with Chelsea’s expansive vocal range yielded powerful results. In 2016 they formed SHAED, the name a reference to a fictional cloak woven out of shadow.
Anchored by Chelsea Lee’s soulful vocals, Spencer and Max take turns across keyboards, electric guitar, percussion, and bass to recreate the band’s unique production live.
Their music thus far has been multifaceted - on one hand, SHAED trades in infectious, deeply danceable electro-pop, cut with glittering synths and the spirit of ‘80s R&B. But Chelsea’s voice as she sings about the intoxicating power of love—which can swing between ecstatic, Madonna-like highs and growling lows—lends their songs surprising emotional depth. And unexpected instrumental touches—a ghostly whistle in “Trampoline,” orchestral strings at the end of “Melt” —further distinguish their sound from their pop counterparts.
