Biography

Army Navy was born in the bedroom of Justin Kennedy, who in his early days played with Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie) in the Seattle band Pinwheel. Having relocated to Los Angeles after Pinwheel broke up, Kennedy began focusing on his new project and started assembling members for Army Navy. Multi-instrumentalist Louie Schultz joined swiftly after hearing Kennedy’s home demos. Without a permanent sticks man at the time of recording the first album, Army Navy’s album boasted drumming by the legendary Pete Thomas of Elvis Costello and The Attractions, who had been a longtime fan of the band. Army Navy soon found their permanent drummer Douglas Randall.

The past few years were very exciting for the independent band. Army Navy released their first (Lasus produced) album on their own Fever Zone Label in 2008 and quickly garnered great admiration from fans and in the press. CMJ called it “…some of the brightest pop released this year”. The quartet’s first single “My Thin Sides,” which was paired with a hilarious video featuring Paul Scheer of Human Giant took the blogosphere by storm. The second single “Saints” which Blender Magazine called “a lovely indie-rock swoon” was the prestigious Single Of the Week on iTunes Australia and was released on the UK’s Fierce Panda’s Club Fandango Label. Stateside, it gained radio rotation on tastemaker stations like KEXP and KNRK and satellite radio’s indie-leaning XMU station.
