Summer 2009 saw everyone in the blogging world get carried away with American duo (/quartet/possibly sextet, if you count the backing singers) The Drums. Even Boy George thinks they're great. And understandably so, The Drums have somehow made the quest for pop perfection a credible, exciting proposition.
The hype generating 'Let's Go Surfing' was a bodacious statement of intent and this week's 'Summertime' EP (out on the forever brilliant Moshi Moshi label) follows through, with its wonderful mix of new wave, post punk and Shangri La-esque stylings. Finally, a buzz band that delivers. Sexy time.
Buy the 'Summertime' EP by The Drums from Moshi Moshi. They're also playing a handful of tourdates around the UK this month.
