Countless bands in Tokyo emulate American Rock. What allows a handful of these bands to break out and go international is a specific trait - a familiar Western style that straddles the line between innovation and character. Detroit7 broke out at last year's South by Southwest festival, a big move for a band that spent its first eight years smashing it up on the Tokyo scene. The three-piece band's live show has drawn attention, with the grungy, busted English drawl of lead-girl Nabana and the adorable energy of drummer Miyoko. It's the kind of music Seattle produced in the early 90s before radio co-opted it. Detroit7's self titled album is out today (3/10/09), and it's crunchy.
