Japandroids, the poppy, playfully angsty Vancouver garage-punk duo of guitarist Brian King and drummer David Prowse formed in 2006, self-releasing 2007’s All Lies and 2008’s Lullaby Death Jams. Originally circulated by Canadian label Unfamiliar, their newest outing Post-Nothing gets an official U.S. release 8/4 via Polyvinyl. We asked King about standout “Wet Hair.”
Who’s wet hair inspired the song?
The wet hair I am referring to is the wet hair of a girl. And not just any girl, but one of those girls. You know the kind. You’ve probably known one or two girls like that in your past, and you’ll probably know one or two more in your future. Don’t pretend like you don’t know the kind of girl I am talking about.
What’s the storyline?
That is for you to interpret. Interpretation > Explanation. Interpretation is a trans-Atlantic voyage. Explanation is taking the bus to work.
Speaking of which, did you ever make it to France to french kiss with French girls?
No, not yet. But time is on my side. Yes it is!
