By The Drums
"Days" is the latest release from Brooklyn outfit, The Drums. The single is taken from their second album "Portamento" and is the third offering so far. The sparseness of the instrumentation creates a dreary and sentimental atmosphere throughout. Harmonies fill the gaps as Jonny Pierce provides the leading melody and guitarist Connor Hanwick supplies those Spektor-esque tones the band are known for.
This album has taken a deeper and more mature attitude both lyrically and in the more expansive production. To accommodate for the changed, the band have roped in two of their friends to perform alongside them. The Drums have taken away their bulky backing tracks to portray a much more aesthetic live show.
"Days" is out on February 27th and to celebrate this the band will be embarking on a few dates across England including a headline slot on the NME Awards Show at the London Roundhouse on the same date.
