The Drums' new single, 'Money', will be released on September 5th 2011, via Moshi Moshi/ Island Records. It is the first single to be taken from their second album, 'Portamento', which is released on September 12th 2011.
The video for 'Money' was directed by M Blash, who is best known for his work with Final Fantasy (also known as Owen Pallett). The video was shot in New York and sees the band rehearsing their song in a basement, intercut with them walking along the streets near their home and spying on two pretty girls having a conversation.
Brooklyn based band The Drums - consisting of Johnny Pierce (vocals, guitars); Jacob Graham (synths) and Connor Hanwick (guitar) - released their debut EP, 'Summertime!' in 2009, followed by their self titled debut album in 2010 to positive reviews; it peaked at number 16 in the UK Album Charts and was certified Silver. The Drums have gone on to sell 200,000 albums worldwide and have toured throughout Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, Indonesia, Europe, Brazil, the US and Chile. In 2009, The Drums were one of the 15 music acts nominated for the BBC's 'Sound of 2010'; they placed 4th. They have supported for well known bands such as Florence and the Machine and Kings of Leon and they cite their main influences as the Shangri-La's, The Smiths and Joy Division, among others.
