Shaku

— The Canteen
Full on joyous psych-rock with a jazzy grin and a prog vibration which runs through their veins like musical haemoglobin

Figureheads of Frog Rock.
Disciples of Distortion.
Vanguards of Visceral, Varied, High-Velocity musical incidents.

Shaku’s genre-fluid identity blasts listeners into a new era of
guitar rock injected with towering rave synths and giddy
nostalgia. Boasting a crib-sheet of influences from Frank
Zappa, Primus and Caravan to Kool Moe Dee, Chaka Khan and Parliament/Funkadelic, they describe themselves as a 20 car motorway pile-up if amphibians drove adrenaline-fueled race cars made of jazz.

After forming in 2017 and years of relentless gigging, supporting the likes of The Headhunters, Henge and Too Many Zooz, Shaku finally delivered their much anticipated debut album "Maku" in February 2020 with a packed headline show at Leeds' Brudenell Social Club followed by a UK tour. Expect to hear Shaku loud and back with a vengeance, piling heaps of new material into crowds far and wide.
