You’ll recall the Drums as the Brooklyn-based quartet who brightened the dark corners of indie-dom this past winter with the singles from their infectiously catchy Summertime! EP. Their back with a recently released self-titled debut full-length. Retaining their brand of indie new-wave surf rock, the Drums is a sonic tide pool swirling the spacious tones of the Smiths and the tonal ocean-infused waves and upbeat harmonies of the Pyramids or the Daytonas. Check it out and them watch them on one of their remaining tour dates with Surfer Blood. And then pick up that LP over at Amazon.
So what do you think? Did the album live up to the promise of the EP?
