The Drums, comprised of core songwriting duo of Jonathan Pierce and Jacob Graham, have had a couple of novel ideas over the past few years. #1 was to move from Orlando, Florida to Brooklyn. #2 was to relocate from Brooklyn New York to London – Brits love anything that reminds them of Joy Division and The Smiths. #3 was getting a video endorsement from Boy George that ‘mysteriously’ ended up on NME’s website. #4 was to release a very danceable, whistle-friendly homage to hitting some waves – listen to “Let’s Go Surfing”.
Their most recent flash of genius involves playing the 9:30 Club in DC on September 12th with fellow Floridians (and beach dudes) – Surfer Blood.
