Personal Trainer

Friday 31 May

With a cheeky smirk, Willem Smit will likely tell you his project Personal Trainer is ‘strictly bedroom music’. You might wonder how long the Canshaker Pi-frontman can play us for fools. The lucky few who have already witnessed Personal Trainer live tell a different tale: a manic indie rock orchestra that taps into the wayward spirits of Car Seat Headrest, Silver Jews, The Fall and LCD Soundsystem, with Smit paying the role of everyman poet and ringmaster. Let us guess one more thing: Personal Trainer’s front will likely be exposed after their blistering Best Kept Secret show, as they are truly Dutch indie rock’s best kept secret.
