Watch: Japandroids Perform Two Songs On Fallon

    Brian King and David Prowse (no, not that one), better known as Japandroids, are straining under the weight of positive reviews for their second album, the euphoric Celebration Rock. But this is clearly a band that’s best seen live, as this performance of “Fire’s Highway” on Jimmy Fallon’s show last night demonstrates. Sure, there’s nothing new here, and lord knows we’ve had enough punk-aligned two-piece outfits in recent times, but ultimately this is just straight-down-the-line rock music played with maximum efficiency and emotion. The duo swelled to a three-piece by jamming with Captain Kirk Douglas from the Roots for the web-exclusive version of “The House That Heaven Built”—check out both songs below.
