British Columbia Garage Rock
The New Jangles, from Vancouver, feel firmly at home in the Garage Rock Revival movement, pioneered in the 21st century by groups like The Strokes and The Vines. A rough punky sound, minimal instrumentation, high musical energy, and swing-style drumbeat are all telltale indicators, and the Jangles use all of these well. The singer is dynamite, and the band matches pace with some great basslines, mad key solos, and frantically fun drumming. This song sent me fond memories of Jet's 2009 hit "Are You Gonna Be My Girl." The New Jangles are undoubtedly able to rock a fun warehouse show in their hometown... though if they want to make a national name for themselves, they might need to find a way to diversify their sound a little bit.
