Japanther + Hall
Japanther (Brooklyn, NY)
Basically, Japanther is everything that pop punk used to be, and should have remained, before the genre was corrupted by MTV, Hot Topic and every other culture-crushing corporation. They have become well known in their hometown of Brooklyn and around the world for their high-energy shows and riotous dance parties. Also, for using telephones as microphones.
Japanther joints are nothing if not fun. Expect songs about skating, surfing, girl problems and the usual punk rock fare all done with Japanther’s signature fuzzy, garagey, poppy innocence. You won’t be able to help yourself from humming along and singing their songs in the shower.
Even though Japanther’s songs tend to be pretty simple and straightforward, the band is much more than the sum of its songs. It’s not uncommon for the band to collaborate with artists, writers, poets and of course other bands on various projects. From haute couture to punk rock, Japanther manage to reach a variety of scenes on an international level.
Das spannende junge Duo spielt verzerrt-vertrackten Noise mit einem Hauch früher Jesus and Mary Chain. Awesome!
