Who We Are
Vacant Windows a Baltimore based collaboration consisting of artist/producer Samuel Morgan and keyboardist Michelle Shaw. The project focuses on Darkwave oriented, aggressive and sometimes wistful electronic music. By tossing aside the comfortable conventions of traditional rock and roll, the goal is to approach music with an adventurous attitude towards experimentation through the blending of natural ambient and analog instrumentation and an array of synthesized and sequenced sounds. Vacant Windows began in 2012 and have released an EP entitled The Singles, and a self titled full length which has been compared to the sounds of Depeche Mode and The XX. The band is currently working on their second LP album, which is shaping up to be a dynamic mix of synthetic and analog expression.
"If anyone has ever doubted the power of DIY, let Vacant Windows make them believe."

"This Baltimore electronic band certainly brings a level of sophistication to its sound. With tracks structured around tenacious beats and loops, Vacant Windows establishes an acute rhythm that carries each song through an experience of moody highs and lows, while maintaining a catchy, mellow dramatic pulse." Bishop and Rook August 8th, 2013
