“Dutch indie-rockers expertly juggle with pathos, clatter and Malkmus-esque deadpan.”

The Amsterdam-based indie rock collective seeks out sharp-witted ways to prolong the innate joy of being a band just plugging in and playing. Willem Smit, the group’s conductor and cheerleader, started Personal Trainer as an ultimate love letter to the vibrant scene he himself inhabits. Their records display a playful, almost hyperactive diversity of sounds and influences, and their aim is simple and clear – create that feeling of being a little bit out of your depth, a little foolish, and allow some of that silliness to guide the musical direction forward.
