Selected Reviews and Comments

Produced by Wolf Parade’s Dan Boeckner, the latest from the Toronto band accompanies manic, referential lyrics with neon-tinted, futurist power-pop.

The band wear their influences well, flitting between the melancholic indie-pop of The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and the gleeful abandon of Jonathan Richman.

Kiwi Jr. Find Their Place with the Indie-Rock Greats on Chopper

Kiwi Jr. have known hooks since they hit the scene in 2019 with Football Money, a rambunctious, tumbling debut full of sharp observations, humorous musings, and vivid character portraits. With every successive album—last year’s Cooler Returns and now, Chopper—the Toronto-via-Charlottetown quartet shows off increasingly sophisticated and expansive songwriting skills.

Kiwi Jr. return with album number three and take a turn away from their jangle-indie to embrace more synth-pop while retaining their slacker charm.
