Japandroids - 'The House That Heaven Built'

There's an obvious influence of Springsteen’s America

The fuzz. The garage. The rock. The obvious influence of Springsteen’s America. The “oh oh oh oh” followed by the “oh oh oh”. The ripped Levi’s. The Cons. The ink. The drum rolls. The punk. The pop. The breaking the speed limit. The unwashed jeans. The greasy hair. The rabble rousing “and if they try to slow you down/Tell them all to go to hell”. Yeah, this rules.
