The return of The Drums. Listen to new single – ‘Money’

Hot on the heels of last year’s debut, The Drums are back with the follow up LP – Portamento. With their influences firmly etched on their sleeves the Brooklyn outfit left many cold but I have to admit – I loved them from the off. In fact, I liked them so much so that they made a healthy dent in my Top Songs of 2010. ‘Money’ doesn’t stray too far from their original formula – it’s a fast-paced bundle of riffs, laced around a self-pitying, love-lorn tale of poverty and want, with a typically romantic 80s vibe evident throughout. A nice little warm up for the new material so – consider my interest piqued. One thing though – how weird is that cover image?! 

Portamento is out on September 12th and the band play this year’s Electric Picnic.
