The Drums (Brooklyn, NY) Details

The Drums (Brooklyn, NY)

The Drums are an American band from Brooklyn, New York, with members stemming from the shortlived band Elkland (formerly Goat Explosion). The band is currently on the Moshi Moshi label.

Immediately on the heels of the end of Elkland, frontman Jonathan Pierce started The Drums with former Goat Explosion member Jacob Graham of Orlando’s Flashlight Party. “Let’s Go Surfing” was the lead single from the band’s debut EP, Summertime!. Vocalist Jonathan Pierce told Q magazine that the song is not about surfing itself, it “is more about the spirit behind surfing.”

“We only write about two feelings: one is the first day of summer when you and all of your friends are standing on the edge of a cliff watching the sun set and being overcome with all of your hopes and dreams at once. The other is when you’re walking alone in the rain and realize you will be alone forever.”

With their arrival in New York, The Drums added former Elkland guitarist Adam Kessler on second guitar and NYC born drummer Connor Hanwick (formerly of lo-fi teen pop duo Cape of No Hope) to the line up and set up a month long residency at a small club on the lower east side of Manhattan. Word of mouth quickly spread and by the end of June 2009, The Drums’ concerts had become a weekly dance party attended religiously by the most critical music fans in New York City.
