The Drums – Magic Mountain

The Drums have returned, and with a title like Magic Mountain, you’d be expecting some dreamy beach pop, just like previous releases Money and Let’s Go Surfing. But you’d be incredibly wrong if you did. Magic Mountain contains the bands beach pop style, but now on their 3rd LP, the now duo of Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham, have said, we can do what we want, and have loaded this incredible, four minute track, with glorious, deeper riffs, and spiralling guitar tones, which creates something The Drums have never really had on their tracks. A sense of urgency and decay. And it’s absolutely insane.
