The Drums return with ‘Magic Mountain’

Written By Sam Murphy on 07/16/2014

And the comebacks just keep on coming. It’s been three years since Brooklyn band, The Drums’, sophomore album, Portamento, but today they’ve returned with a brand new song. Magic Mountain sees the band reduced to a duo with founding members, Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham carrying the torch. The song is not a huge departure from their previous work but their are certainly a few tweaks. The vocals are slightly hazy while the instrumentation whisks around in a dizzying flurry. The band told Noisey: “Together, we had just one goal: let go of any preconceived ideas that anyone has about the Drums and make songs to be as grand and majestic as we want them to be.” Well, they’ve certainly achieved that. Magic Mountain is a monster of a song.
