The Drums have been active since 2008, and currently there is only one founding member still in the band. The initial members formed after meeting at bible camp when they were pre-teens. They went on to support artists like Bombay Bicycle Club, Florence and the Machine. This track is from their most recent album 2017 Abysmal Thoughts, which could be described as the introduction to a new era due to the shift in active members.
I felt like this was an appropriate songs to follow Dreamers because its upbeat somewhat positive, but somewhat sad. This is type of song that you can blast in the car and scream the chorus at the top of your lungs whether you’re happy or sad about something. I can see it being featured in an indie coming of age story or as the background song for that video you made about your vacation last summer.
