Rare Americans is a Canadian indie band, formed in 2018 by brothers James and Jared Priestner. James joked that they should try writing a song together, to which Jared replied, 'A song? Fuck that, let's write an album!' Ten days later, the first record of Rare Americans was recorded. The new album 'You’re Not a Bad Person, It's Just a Bad World' explores themes and struggles about anxiety, fear, pressure, jealousy, guilt, loss, regret and bullying, coated in catchy pop rock songs. Rare Americans have established an identity as inventive storytellers.
