There's nothing quite like simplicity. Fuck your ukuleles, fuck your French horns, fuck your multi-voice vocal interplay and especially fuck your degree in Philosophy. If you can't write a good song with just vocals, guitar and drums, you can't write good songs period. Japandroids is a back-to-basics rock band; guitarist Brian King and drummer David Prowse sing songs about partying, drinking, and making the world your bitch. Their second album, Celebration Rock is the sonic equivalent of pure heroin in the main vein: fucking loud guitar riffs, fucking power drum fills, and fucking good times. Japandroids is one of the few indie rock bands that actually "rocks."
