Drums and guitar hit a top note in debut EP MARIE SANSOM WHO: Made In Japan WHERE: The Annandale Hotel, corner of Parramatta Rd and Nelson St, Annandale WHEN: Friday, February 20 at 8pm COST: $10 at the door DETAILS: www.annandalehotel.com MADE in Japan release their self-titled debut EP at the Annandale Hotel this week. Drummer and vocalist James Cooney, 19, of Lewisham, described the four-piece band's style as reminiscent of Brit pop and indie rock with a youthful energy. ''The catalyst for starting was definitely the first album from Bloc Party,'' Cooney said. ''I really connected with the combination of the energy of the drums and the emotion in the guitar playing.'' Cooney sings about living in Sydney, surfing and that old pop perennial, being in love. He described the new EP as ''a very honest recording''. ''It's not over-produced. What you're hearing on the record is very much what we sound like,'' Cooney said. Asked if it is hard to concentrate on singing and drumming, he said : ''It feels like I'm introducing another element to my playing. You don't want to have a drummer that's doing all sorts of frilly stuff all the time. It reduces it to its core elements.'' Made in Japan Tom Davis, of Haberfield, Mike Williams, of Pennant Hills, and Jono Graham, of Lilyfield. The band forged their two-year career in Inner West venues. ''We've played in the city and clubs on Oxford St but we find it's a bit more about the scene, the core focus isn't the music. ''We feel at home in places like the Annandale because there are no pretensions and it's about the music, that's all.''
