“Japandroids manage that crucial feat of great rock 'n roll duos: to sound much bigger than just two people possibly should. The Vancouver BC band's songs for drums and guitar are uniformly triumphant: guitars cresting, drums thundering and rolling, dual vocals shouting sweetly at you to tell your foes to go to hell. Another way for two dudes to sound like a much bigger band: make every song one the entire crowd will want to sing along to.”
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.
