Canshaker Pi + Bull + Serial Chiller

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. 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.

Starting off as a high school band right across from the legendary venue Paradiso in Amsterdam, Canshaker Pi claimed the throne to Holland’s most acclaimed live-band. In 2016 they released their untitled debut album, produced by Pavement’s Stephen Malkmus. Making their mark with their debut, the band played every major festival in The Netherlands (Le Guess Who, Eurosonic, Best Kept Secretand Lowlands) and toured Europe alongside Spiral Stairs (of Pavement’s Scott Kannberg).

On January 1st BBC Radio 1 – host Huw Stephens tipped Canshaker Pi as one of the best new bands to look out for in 2018.

“Canshaker Pi make a supercharged, highly rhythmic brand of indie rock that blends pysch, punk, and noise. That may sound like calamity, but it’s well-tempered with tight playing and opportune shifts in energy and aesthetics.” – Stereogum

“We really like that one, sounds like it would be a riot on stage!” – BBC Radio1

“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.” – DIY

“Reference points could include Sebadoh, Guided By Voices or Pavement themselves, but what’s most impressive is the sound of a young voice gathering confidence.” – Clash Magazine
