The Drums – “Down By The Water”

“Down By The Water” is the most balladic, down tempo moment on the Drums’ self-titled debut. (Because as “It Will All End In Tears,” the track that follows it, suggests, water’s not always about sun and surfing). I’m not entirely sure how Jonathan Pierce robot dances to this one, but you’ll see firsthand on their co-headlining tour with similarly sandy Surfer Blood. (And note: The above press photo was taken by one Alex Lake, because everything these guys do is somehow associated with H2O.)
