Watch: Japandroids – The House That Heaven Built

Japandroids

Japandroids have given their first ever music video to the world, and it’s for one of most energetic, unshakable, and flat-out best rock and roll songs of the year: “The House That Heaven Built.” The video is an unsurprisingly high voltage, black and white affair capturing the Vancouver duo on tour before their passionate fans and making the most of whatever downtime they can scrape up. This sort of thing has been done a thousand times over in music videos, but rarely has the choice made as perfect sense as it does for Japandroids and this particular song.

If you have yet to pick up Celebration Rock, Japandroids’ rousing, nearly flawless sophomore LP, this video should be the kick in the ass to finally send you over the hump. The boys just tacked on a wealth of new dates to their already bustling tour schedule, so watch for them to hit a town near you (and likely burn it to ash).
