Vancouver based rockers Japandroids have given fans another taste of their new album, with, No Known Drink or Drug. Sticking to the typical Japandroids sound, the single has even more of the pumping percussion and head-bang-worthy guitar riffs that fans have grown to expect and love. It’s not a single that strays from the band’s usual sound and shocks listeners, but why fix what isn’t broken?

The single is almost like a love song set to a rock and roll sound. The lyrics “No known drink and no known drug could ever hold a candle to your love,” make up the understated chorus. The lines show a sweet and mature side of the duo. These lyrics, combined with the “she-na-na-na” harmonies, make the song a potential ear-worm.
This second single shares a few similarities to the first from the upcoming album, but No Known Drink or Drug has something that makes it the front-runner. It’s insanely catchy, fun and upbeat, with some surprisingly moving lyrics.
The bands new album Near to the Wild Heart of Life is out on the 27th of January via ANTI-. Keep your eyes peeled over the next couple of weeks for the GIGsoup review
