A two-piece “band” from Vancouver, British Columbia, Japandroids started in 2006 as a creative outlet for the post-teenage angst of Brian King and David Prowse. Originally intended 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 employ 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 consider themselves “maximal” — a two-piece band trying to sound like a five-piece band.
