This August 19 at the Hard Rock Café in Makati, Canadian rock duo Japandroids will prove that half a band can be twice as great as a full four-member lineup. With only two members sharing vocal duties—Brian King on guitar and David Prowse on drums—the band has gained notoriety through their energetic live performances.
Japandroids was formed in Vancouver in 2006 and struggled to break into the Vancouver music scene. While recording “Post-Nothing” in 2008, they saw that the band was going nowhere and decided to release the album in 2009 without any promotion.
Yet this surrender turned their fortunes around as music website Pitchfork had awarded the song “Young Hearts Spark Fire” with Best New Track and consequently the entire album with Best New Music which enabled the band’s music to reach a global audience.
