CMJ Spotlight: Army Navy

Los Angeles, CA-based indie-pop band Army Navy kicked off their Fall US co-headlining tour earlier this month. The band will be playing five CMJ shows, including our FREE show with PledgeMusic on Thursday at Rockwood Music Hall

Recently the band released the music video for their song “Ode To Janice Melt.” Directed by Jeremy Konner (“Drunk History”) and starring Jason Ritter (“The Event”/”Parenthood”), the video is an unusual (yet humorous) look at a hidden relationship. Check it out below.

Released on July 12, 2011 through the band’s very own The Fever Zone Records, The Last Place, an album that garnered Army Navy a recent Rolling Stone Magazine ‘Artist To Watch’ nod and what SPIN Magazine recently called “a feel-bad record you can actually feel good about” in their 8-out-of-10 album review, is the story of an intoxicating relationship gone awry and one’s ability to make sense of a truly tumultuous situation via bittersweet lyrics and shining guitars.
