WHO: The Drums are Jonathan Pierce and Jacob Graham; New York based and formerly of the now defunct band Elkland.

COMPARISONS:The Smiths meets Joy Division meets a little bit of Echo & the Bunnymen.

WORTHY: Any band that can make the 1950s sound (“Down by the Water”) and surf culture (“Let’s Go Surfing”) seem hip again deserves to be heard. Listen to the Smiths-infused “I Felt Stupid” – it’ll be on constant repeat in no time.

MORE: Visit them here and check out their myspace.  Catch them at Don Hill’s this Friday, 8.7., for their EP release party.  The “Summertime” EP is officially released through Twenty Seven Records on 9.15.
