After their spooky teaser trailer for Portamento, The Drums have finally released more details about their second album, which is out on September 12.
The first track to be taken from the new record, Money, was aired on Radio 1 last Tuesday. It also now available for streaming online.
Money stays true to The Drums’ original sound. The beach song sounds typically found in their hits such as Let’s Go Surfing are still plentiful but the album is said to have a deeper, more personal tone for lyricist Jonny Pierce.
It’s a great summer song with happy guitar and bubbly lyrics. Jonny Pierce’s vocals have an element of the 80s about them, a slight hint of Duran Duran perhaps. Mix this with the beach style of the music and you have a perfect track.
Take a listen for yourself – Money
