The Drums are back with their second single from their new album, Portamento.
How It Ended is another great track from The Drums. Staying completely loyal to their original surfing sound, this is a song that is close to front man Jonny Pierce. With the video filmed in London, Jonny expresses his contentment with the capital and the video:
“[London] is a place that brings me a good level of comfort and at the same time keeps me on edge, which I think any great city should do.
“We took three days for filming which happened to be the same three days that we were playing a few small intimate shows around London. It made us a bit nostalgic because it was just like the first time we came to London as a band, and our worlds changed forever.”
Director Patrick Roberts said: “For Jonny, this is a very personal song. We wanted to convey a tone of recollection, memory, and longing. While the lyrical content could refer to a person, we wanted to play with the idea that it could also refer to a place.
“We chose to incorporate figures that were ghostly, painterly, and saturated in color. We wanted a video that retained a sense of human touch. Something visceral and intimate.”
The Drums are back in the UK in November for a full UK Tour. For details see The Drums.com.
How It Ended is to be released on October 31.
