LAist Interview: Justin Kennedy of Army Navy
This young moose...er man who is being shot by his band mate is none other than Justin Kennedy the lead singer of Army Navy. Kennedy's history begins in Seattle where he co-lead the band Pinwheel with Ben Gibbard (of Death Cab for Cutie fame.) When Pinwheel came apart, Kennedy headed south to begin again in Los Angeles. Here he put together one of the best brop (brainy pop) outfits in the Southland. His infectious melodies will stick themselves in your head like super glue. They are playing tonight at the Troubadour in support of their stunning debut self-titled album,which was released in October. Mr. Kennedy was kind enough to talk to us yesterday from San Francisco.
Hey, I was just watching the video where you describe a missed opportunity to kill James Blunt. What is with the rage?
Oh man, I hope he sees that video. He makes such horrible, horrible music. Someone has got to put a stop to it.
