NEW MUSIC: Shonen Knife – “Jump Into The New World” (Garage Pop//Osaka, Japan)

shonen knife

Japanese punk rockers Shonen Knife go through some line up changes before their next record.

Their first full length release since 2014 and 19th studio album is due out next month but in order to prepare, founder/front woman Naoko Yamano needed to call up some old friends. Adventures sees the return of the original drummer, Atsuko Yamano, now on bass alongside Risa on drums. Now with this dream team in order the ladies have dropped “Jump Into The New World”, the bouncing garage rock track full of infectious pop melodies and riddled with fast, cheerful guitar licks.

The women of Shonen Knife promise a more rock sound then their recent releases but we’re glad to see they still manage to add their bubblegum punk attitudes to the mix.


Adventures hits Japanese shelves next month via Damnably Records. North America will see the release April 1st.
