Their young age is possibly the main reason for The Pier's lack of reverence towards trends and rules. One can define them a math rock group, or post punk, indeed their attitude combines punk edgy angularity with an uncontainable playfulness. Echoes of Don Caballero, Foals and Joy Division will resonate, but surely The Pier can push influences further into their own creativity's land, using electronics and rhythms patterns as a free jazz combo gone on acid, singing nursery rhymes.
Their second album “Dead Reckoning” was released in 2018 and it’s sailing far already, with gigs in key festivals as Sziget, Waves Vienna and Reeperbahn. 2019 started with a bang: a second guitarist jumped on board, and their sets at Eurosonic Festival and in Czech Republic were a blast of power and emotion.
Now The Pier are ready and fit to make Europe their stage and playground.
