The Drums’ second album, “Portamento”, now has its sleeve art prepared (featuring a vintage photo), a tracklist and a release date of 12th September. It also has a first official single, “Money”, a song they already played live. The melodies are infectious, the guitars fast, the feel is summery and the mood is light. Pure The Drums, in short, except maybe for a minor change on the vocal side. This explains the recent comments by the band which drew our attention, that their new material would sound different. We’ll have to wait for the record to come out to hear what other surprises they have in store for us..
