NOTE: I hadn’t really given the Japandroids much of a listen until today. This song immediately struck my fancy. In a matter of an hour or two, it has become one of my favorites for this year. I chose to write about what I gleaned from the song’s lyrics rather than the sound because the few words offered provide much to consider. That’s not to say sonically this song doesn’t stack up, because it is thrilling in its own right.
