Japandroids: Young Hearts Spark Fire
Japandroids (JPNDRDS) is a two piece band from Vancouver, BC. This ‘band’ started in 2006 as a creative outlet for the post-teenage angst of Brian King and David Prowse. Originally intending to be a trio, the boys decided to forgo the logistical nightmare of having a ‘lead singer’ and do it themselves. As a consequence, Japandroids are 1 guitar, 1 set of drums, and 2 vocalizers. They call it garage rock. They don’t care what you call it, as long as it’s not minimal. Japandroids are maximal – a two piece band trying to sound like a five piece band.
Post-Nothing, the most recent release, is already building on the buzz of 2008’s Lullaby Death Jams and 2007’s All Lies. These latest gems run the gauntlet of rock n roll sub-genres, with the boys ripping off too many different bands to sound like any other duo making music right now.
