RIYL: Beach Fossils Craft Spells, Wild Nothing, DIIV

Label: ANTI-Records

The Drums are returning this spring with their 5th studio album, Brutalism. From the single, it sounds like they are changing up their sound a bit, and this is a welcomed direction from the New York based group. Get it on Clear vinyl, limited to 250 from their web store. Additionally, this writeup below sums up the project pretty well.

Brutalism is truly pop at its core, with thoroughly modern production and Pierce’s newfound tenderness. Back in The Drums’ previous iterations, the pressure was on Pierce to maintain the innocent and nostalgic sound of this surf-pop indie band and it didn’t allow him to explore sex, drug use, darker emotions or how he felt currently. “Abysmal Thoughts” was the first occasion he had chance to do that. Lyrically Brutalism is another giant step in that direction, and is defined by vulnerability. That’s why you can dance to Brutalism, you can cry to Brutalism, and you can laugh to it too.
