"We just wanted to start a band that sounded like The Wake." say The Drums, "We heard their song 'Pale Spectre' and went crazy! Maybe our music didn't turn out sounding too much like The Wake but we're really just like everybody else, chasing that perfect pop song. And that's not so bad right?" Not so bad indeed! The Drums have a sound that pulls together years of obvious influence by the Factory Records sound and a sudden fascination with 50's surf culture. A combination that may not seem logical, but when you hear it you'll know you need it, you've gotta have it and it's what has always been missing.
Making their live debut at the Cake Shop (May 17, 2009) for the New York City Popfest, The Drums was an instant splash success. Their quick set drew numerous and curious pop lovers to their high energy performance. Camera flashes sparkled through their songs while the crowd cheered. Brooklyn Vegan, one of the United States' most read and highly regarded blogs was "wowed" by their debut. Containing eight (including two bonus Australian and New Zealand) tracks of sweet innocent pop songs, the Summertime! EP is the perfect accompaniment to upcoming warm sunny season. Prepare yourself for an instant classic!
