The Drums put the begging, pleading lyrics of “Me And The Moon” to some pretty moon projections for this video. The band members don’t really interact in this clip (frontman Jonathan Pierce does some of his stiff-legged dance moves on his own), and it highlights the loneliness and isolation that is present in so many of their songs (though the band’s songs are ultimately optimistic, as this NME interview points out). Watch:

The Drums is out now via Downtown. The Drums were the secret guest at our STEREO★GUN party last week.

  1. I see these guys with Surfer blood a few weeks ago. Everyone I was there with bought tickets to see Surfer Blood and all came away much more impressed with the Drums. Not all that surprising since we’re all of an age where we grew up with the Cure and New Order.

  2. Jonathan: I really don’t feel like making a video today.
    Other members: Yeah, we’re just not feeling it.
    Video Director: Too fucking bad. You’re making a video whether you like it or not.
    The Drums: Fine, whatever.
