Shonen Knife

avatar

Shonen Knife is an all-female Japanese pop punk band formed in Osaka, Japan in 1981. Heavily influenced by 1960s girl groups and early punk rock bands such as The Ramones, the trio crafts stripped-down songs expressing infectious melodies and simplistic, exuberant lyrics sung both in Japanese and English. Despite their pop-oriented nature, the trio maintains a distinctly underground garage rock sound rooted in edgy instrumentation and D.I.Y.
