Oh man, this takes me back to the gritty rock of the late 90s. Following the loud, raucous punk-ish path of groups like No Age, Japandroids feature wild guitars, intense percussion, and dual screams. The band is Brian King and David Prowse and their music is Canadian genius. “Young Hearts Spark Fire” is absolutely brilliant.
The song is off their current digital release Post-Nothing, out now on Unfamiliar Records. For all you physical release junkies like myself, you’ll be happy to hear that the LP will hit brick-and-mortar stores this summer (August 4 to be exact) via Polyvinyl Records.
