The Drums – ‘Money’ video & album details

One 2010’s biggest buzz bands and purveyors of bouncing ’80s-tinged surf pop, The Drums have announced details of the follow-up to their massively successful eponymous debut.

Entitled Portamento, album number two from the Brooklyn-based trio (five in a live setting) will be preceded by the single ‘Money’. The track paints from The Drums’ tried and trusted pallete, lilting guitar lines and lovelorn woes with added keyboard and vocal melody completed by a shuffling rhythm perfect for Jonathon Pierce’s expressive dance style.

‘Money’ will be released the first week in September, Portamento a week later, via Island Records. Also in early September, The Drums will make the trip to Stradbally to play Electric Picnic. Busy times ahead.
