Pia Fraus

Wonder What It's Like LP

Wonder What It's Like was the first musical product of Pia Fraus. It was released in 2001 with a pop-up label Pia Records as a limited CD-r in a pressing of just 150 copies. The album shows the beginnings of the musical aims and preferences of a group of 18-year-old Estonian shoegazers. The aesthetics were, at the time, somewhat limited by technical possibilities, but these limitations could not fully smother the constant and discreetly controlled beauty of the band's music.
 
The album takes off with youthful energy and it is the held-back vocals that offer a glimpse into Pia Fraus' future sound. There are some rough corners and unpolished surfaces, and more lo-fi noise than the current Pia Fraus fans have come to like and expect. But the band's search for their personality is obvious here.
 
In addition to the tracks from the original release, the album contains four remixes from Galaktlan, Njuu, Snafu, and Lobsand Dorje.
 
WWIL was recorded by Hendrik Luuk and Lauri Liivak at Forwards studio in Tartu and by Alo Jaanivald at Orbital Vox in Tallinn.
 
The vinyl release of Wonder What It's Like is hand numbered and limited to 444 copies Worldwide!
