Japandroids is a two-piece band from Vancouver, BC., which began in 2006 and consists of Brian King and David Prowse. The duo consists of one guitar, one set of drums, and two vocalizers, yet are maximal in their delivery; a two- piece band sounding like a five-piece band. Like their prior albums Post-Nothing (2009) and Celebration Rock (2012), Near To The Wild Heart Of Life is comprised of eight songs. This is because eight songs is the standard template for a great rock ‘n’ roll album. “Rock ‘n’ roll so often boils down to simple pursuits: the search for love, sex, escape, revenge, satisfaction, or some signifier of freedom and home. But for Brian King and David Prowse of Japandroids, that central pursuit is often majesty itself. Japandroids’ new album is titled Near To The Wild Heart Of Life, so those themes remain in full effect from the opening drum fills of the title track. But the themes here are a bit more expansive: Released four and a half years after Celebration Rock, these eight songs are clearly the product of reflection, upheaval and the soul-searching that so often comes with travel and time off” – NPR.
