Noisy riffs and delicate disco combine at Zig-Zag Rolling With… gig
The Drums, 'Money'
The opening shot from their second album.
Origami, baking flapjacks, ‘slave for a day’ – come on Jon, there are plenty of gratis gestures you could make… Anyway, as a first lick of second album ‘Portamento’, due this September, it hardly signals a musical about-turn – although apparently the new record will see them swap their former artifice for the more personal, plunging new desperately dark depths. But for now ‘Money’ is a distinct reminder that the world is an infinitely happier place with The Drums careering around in it – even if they don’t exactly seem to be enjoying themselves.
