“Canshaker Pi will blow the world away with their sound. They are loud, young and not too snotty. They play guitar rock. They don't sound like anything in the Portland Oregon high school system I can tell u that — confident, frustrated tunes beyond their years. Get in the way of these lads and sparks will fly for sure.” – Stephen Malkmus
Indeed, a Canshaker Pi show can be described as one big kamikaze run. The Amsterdam-based quartet's inflammable brand of indie rock is a gleeful but high-stakes affair. The first thing you notice about Canshaker Pi is how they relish in puerile dicking about, albeit never for the sake of just 'dicking about'.
Beneath their fidgety, high-strung stage antics simmers a piercing intensity, one that perhaps comes with a creeping awareness that the days of being young, wild and free will eventually pass. Canshaker Pi frantically capitalize on their youthful zest with a relentless now-or-never stride.
“We really like that one, sounds like it would be a riot on stage!”
“A blustering romp of fuzzy guitars, big joyously off-kilter guitars and needling riffs, it’s a barely-contained sprint of indie rock (in the purest sense of the term) that hardly pauses for breath.”
New Indie three piece.
Shoegaze/Bedroom Pop band, based in Leeds.
