Two dudes (with vocalizers). One guitar. One drum kit. The best band in the world right now. A one-sentence band bio I banged out on Memorial Day while I should be doing other stuff:
Raw enough to sound right out of the garage with the nuance and cynicism that comes with the experience of navigating the indie rock landscape of the early 21st century for a half decade, Japandroids are a proper rock band that eschews beat drops and electro-synth drudgery for a sound that screams of small, sweaty venues and damaged hearing.
Japandroids' second LP, Celebration Rock, drops on June 3 on Polyvinyl Records.
