Pkew Pkew Pkew announce

by Woody on January 28, 2019

Pkew Pkew Pkew are a Toronto punk band that routinely came up on Spotify once a Jeff Rosenstock or The Dirty Nil album ended. Most of their debut album is about getting drunk, eating pizza or the merits of the Kathie Lee & Hoda hour on the Today show. This upcoming album see a slight change as they brought Craig Finn on board for some help. Here’s some info from their website.

Their new material doesn’t offer any solutions, but instead catalogues these behaviours with unflinching clarity and precision. Warne writes in the same tongue as plot-driven realists like The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn, not trading in metaphors or coded language but in undressed, literalist narratives over Pkew’s supercharged twin-guitar crunch. In the spring of 2017, Finn himself came up to workshop songs with the band in Toronto. “You know in school when you can hand your work in early, and the teacher will read it and give it back to you, and then you can really hand it in? It was kinda like that,” grins Warne.
