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 one guitar, one set of drums, and two 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. 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.
