JPNSGRLS​— pronounced "Japanese Girls" — formed in Vancouver in 2010 with a lineup that includes Charlie Kerr, Oliver Mann, Chris McClelland & Graham Serl. The band made their debut with T​he Sharkweek EP​in 2013, on Light Organ Records.​F​or their first full length, C​irculation,​also on Light Organ, the outfit hunkered down in Vancouver's Greenhouse Studios with producer Steve Bays (Hot Hot Heat, Mounties). The twelve songs, mastered by world-renowned engineer Greg Calbi (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, St. Vincent), were tracked in just seven days and mix straight-out-of-the-garage noisiness with earworm hooks and genre-jumping eclecticism. C​irculation,​ along with their whirlwind live show honed supporting July Talk & Mounties and festival slots at CMJ (Top Ten Bands To Watch 2014 - CMJ.com), NXNE and soon SXSW, presents JPNSGRLS as a force to be reckoned with in 2015.
