Since their very first live shows in the spring of 1999, Pia Fraus have become Estonia's finest rock and/or pop ensemble. In the early 2000s, as the initial line-up graduated from art school and Pia Fraus began to build a reputation at home, several labels overseas took an interest, specifically Clairecords in America. That publishing outlet, even now, declares itself a premium venue for "shoegaze, dream-pop, indie pop and everything in between!" A genial exclamation mark ends the list. Those same four terms also serve to frame the sound of Pia Fraus, whose trademark lyricism remains knee-deep in swathes of yearning reverb.
