Before you question this post, take a breather and read on.
The Drums might look like a couple limp-wrists from Venice Beach (Not that there’s anything wrong with that © Jerry Seinfeld), but I’ve taken them up on their offer to “Go Surfing” quite a few times over the past week. Complimenting my haze every morning at work, this misplaced Brooklyn duo successfully accompany some drowning, punkish bass-slappage with the breeziest of pigeon-call whistles, only to snap me out of sustain by swelling into their simplistic Brian-Wilson-esque vocals.
“Wake uuuuuup / It’s a beauuuuutiful morning…”
A nice compliment to getting off your ass, in general, The Drums “Let’s Go Surfing” might not seem like your cup of coffee visually, but you’d be surprised at it’s kick.
