Japandroids – The House That Heaven Built

May 30, 2012

The Japandroids take classic pop and rock hooks and inject them with the maniacal energy of something much more hardcore. The result is a sound that is, at its core, defined by the recklessness of youth and the obligatory adoption of an I-don’t-give-a-fuck attitude. But “The House That Heaven Built” signifies an attitude shift of sorts for Brian King and David Prowse. It’s not that the content has changed all that much — we’re still in a territory similar to Post-Nothing — but there seems to be, somewhat unsurprisingly, a new found confidence behind it all. It’s as if, now that The Japandroids are getting the love they deserve, they finally are aiming high, unafraid of their own ambitions.
