Line Up 2011


Four mates, plenty of inspiration from the pop world of the 50s and 60s as well as a longing for the stage – what else do you need? With their EP Summertime, The Drums bridged the gap between voluminous jukeboxes and glittery synth sound. “We got really inspired by those girl group sounds of the fifties and sixties, which were really perfect pop songs. They were short and they were simple but they were so powerful,“ The Drums stated in an interview. The New York-based band’s self-titled album intensifies the act of balancing between optimistic pop songs and epic melancholy even further.
