Detroit 7 are one of Tokyo’s most explosive bands, a tight trio blasting out raw, Iggy Pop-inspired garage punk and dripping with showmanship. At their performance at South by Southwest’s Japan Nite on March 14, singer Tomomi Nabana drawled her lyrics in a deep husk, thrashing her left-handed guitar like a demon as bassist Nobuaki Kotajima prowled the stage and Miyoko Yamaguchi battered her drum kit to shards. The crowd, of course, went wild.

Just hours before this, their debut U.S. live show, the band sat down for a chat in the lobby of their villa-esque hotel.
