This year, The Drums from NYC dropped their 5th full length album "Abymals Thoughts." If you have not seen this band live yet, we highly recommend! This may sound exaggerated but, frontman Johnny Pierce has a Jim Morrison like stage performance. Unique show to say the least.
It has been fun watching this band evolve over the years. What started out as simple, poppy surf music that reminded you of a simpler time. A time when kids ate ice creams, lit sparklers and drank cola out of a bottle, has slowly evolved into an emotional obituary of indie pop. All of their genres have been perfectly executed.
Also, not only has the music evolved, but so has the band. What started as a static 4 piece has slowly slimmed down to only the original frontman, Johnny Pierce. It has been said that all of their early music was 95% Johnny anyway. So we are all still in good hands. However, this never came out until all the other members dissipated.
Here are some tunes we like:
