“Art Czars,” a limited-release new track from slacker-punk duo Japandroids, is a well-timed reminder that Vancouver is home to more than just teal-coloured clothing and killer luge tracks. The song, with its Metallica-tinged opening and Thermals-style hook, is the first of a planned series of post-Post-Nothing seven-inch singles to be released and recorded during tour breaks this year. And as the B.C. boys sing, here’s your punk rock back!
