Kiwi Jr.

Music / Indie, Rock / Toronto, Canada

It’s amazing what people can create when they’re disgusted by their monotonous office jobs.

Kiwi Jr. aren’t reinventing the wheel, but they do make it spin and get everything right that is too often screwed up: The songs are short and crisp but deal with the current issues of disillusioned millennials of the West who feel a mixture of rejection and powerlessness towards the status quo. Stylistically located somewhere between The Strokes, Weezer and Pavement, Kiwi Jr. have already secured a signing with quality label Sub Pop after just two releases. A clear indication of what is likely to follow.
