Canshaker Pi’s shows 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. With releasing their new single Indie Academy via Excelsior Recordings, Canshaker Pi frantically capitalize on their youthful zest with a relentless now-or-never stride.
Canshaker Pi is touring Europe this fall, alongside Spiral Stairs (of Pavement-member Scott Kannberg).
