We’re back in NYC for our final year of uni with more time to care for the blog than we’ve had while in London over the past few months, so we’re able to take a look back at some of the things we’ve loved all summer but just haven’t had the time to show love to.
Enter The Drums, a band we’ve been spinning since they initially sent ripples through the industry with their NYC live debut at Popfest last May. They’re just now breaking into the tastemaker consciousness with their debut single out on Moshi Moshi now and their Summertime! mini-album to follow next month, and the blogs are abuzz with praise for their breezy summer anthem “Let’s Go Surfing”. It’s the logical single for them given their SURF 4 LIFE aesthetic and their sunny Floridian heritage, but it’s unheralded demo “Me And The Moon” that’s got our hearts aflutter. With no foreseeable release (it’s been left off both the single and upcoming mini-album) we fear it may never see the light of day, so enjoy it below and watch the band take off in the months to come.
