The Drums’ bio says this was the first song founders and best friends (so topical) Jonathan Pierce and Jacob Graham wrote together, though it sounds like they had the ghosts of Brit new wave past in the room, too. Pierce adopts the accent and hem length in this clip, so if you were a Drums hater before, you’ll find lots of hate on here. Otherwise this song, from their upcoming, untitled LP, is a charming bit of agitated Britpop, by some guys living in Brooklyn.
Summertime! EP is out now on Moshi Moshi.
