We don’t know if indie jokes exist, but this could well be the beginning of one: Years after having started and almost finished their careers in the Eden of British 90’s indie,the singer and guitarist from Lush (Miki Berenyi), a member of Moose (K. J. McKillop), another from Elastica (Justin Welch) and a fourth from Modern English (Michael Conroy) decide that the model of dreamy, elusive pop could still make sparks fly in 2019. Ok, it isn’t a good joke because… it’s not a joke. It is what happened. Piroshka are more than survivors from the 90s with a dose of nostalgia for their heyday.: their technique for catching fairies with melodies still shines light, and even dazzles, today.
