Amoeba Review

06/14/2017

After a three year absence The Drums are back with the shimmery, shadowy dance-pop of Abysmal Thoughts. Wearing his romantic melancholia on his sleeve, sole remaining member Jonny Pierce, draws from the late '70s, UK post punk sound to create a New York, dance-punk hybrid. With plucky, surfy guitar hooks, melodic, driving bass, and infectious, wistful vocals Abysmal Thoughts is actually quite a pleasant experience. The release of lead single, "Blood Under My Belt," has been perfectly timed for summer, and is poised to be the number one contender for its soundtrack. "Heart Basel" evokes early Cure, both tone-wise and attitude-wise, and features a most satisfyingly longing chorus, while "Mirror" and "Head Of The Horse," with their more electronic and sampled sounds find their footing a bit more in the 21st century.
