The Drums Share "Magic Mountain", First New Track In 3 Years

Last Week, Brooklyn NY indie poppers The Drums announced the release of their new single "Magic Mountain" for September, now the band are streaming the track.

Speaking about the song, vocalist Jonny Pierce says: 

"Not since the Summertime EP has it been just Jacob and I left up to our own devices. Now that we’re back to just the two founding members, we figured we could do whatever we wanted and run with it. 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. "Magic Mountain" is a sparkling reflection of our last three years. It's about shedding off what binds you and protecting whats good, finding a safe place away from everyone and everything that wants to destroy you." (via Noisey).

Have a listen to the infectious track below, it has been added to our current playlist.
