MP3 of the Day #234: The Drums

By on Thursday, 9th September 2010 at 10:00 am

The Drums‘s profile has jumped by leaps and bounds since the time I first featured their then-new video for ‘Let’s Go Surfing’ a year ago. How far they’ve come.

Recently, they recorded a live cover of Arcade Fire‘s current single ‘We Used to Wait’. The first thing that came to my mind hearing this? The Cribs. At least the Cribs before ‘Housewife’. I guess it’s the jangly guitars and the slightly snarly vocals.

The Drums will begin its biggest tour of North America to date (spanning over a month!) on Saturday in Providence, Rhode Island, co-headlining with fellow Americans Surfer Blood. The Drums will return to the UK in November.
