The Drums Songs Ranked

The Drums are an American indie pop band from New York City. The Drums made their American television debut on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on February 15, 2012. MTV gave the band a celebrity chart special on MTV HD channel in May 2012, where Pierce and Graham introduced their favorite videos and bands as well as some of their own videos. On February 16, 2014, The Drums posted, “celebrating the only way we know how. Album 3 is finished.” on their official Facebook page. On July 17, 2014, The Drums announced that their third studio album would be called Encyclopedia and would be released September 23, 2014. In an interview with Billboard Magazine, they stated that he and Graham were ready to come back together and give The Drums another try. They holed up in a lakeside cabin in upstate New York and “went crazy”, says Graham. “That’s when it occurred to me that we can have fun with this and make a record that’s interesting and bizarre.’ “The resulting cathartic collection of tracks departs from the Drums’ signature “tonal palette,” as Graham calls it. With taut, spindly guitar lines, liberal sprinklings of tambourine, and uptempo kick drums that belie the brooding, thoughtful content matter of songs like “Best Friend”. Here are all of The Drums songs ranked.

10. How It Ended (Portamento, 2011)

“I think this song is about a guy feeling nostalgic about his past relationship and wondering where it went wrong. Seems like he messed things up / pushed her away maybe and now he’s wondering “where (she) you ran to” and wants her back”

9. Down By The Water (The Drums, 2010)

“I love the simplicity of this song. It has an old school r&b type feel that I like. I think the lyrics are pretty self-explanatory”

8. Me And The Moon (The Drums, 2010)

“Its about when a relationship goes sour and your lying in bed contemplating, your girl sleeps with her back to you and your looking out the window at the night sky. “is it me or you or is it me and the moon” represents his despair at being cold shouldered and only having the moon as a friend. beautiful and full of despair this song”

7. Book Of Stories (The Drums, 2010)

“It’s also a good song platonically. like someone you care about more than anyone in the world who constantly screws you over but you care too much about them to really hate them. ‘hate you, i wanted to hate you.’ want to, can’t.”

6. Lets Go Surfing (The Drums, 2010)

“A good debut, full of indie pop gems. I wouldn’t say a masterpiece or groundbreaking but I would say highly enjoyable and great fun. The melodies going on here are fantastic. In general the band keep thing simple here and it works to the bands advantage. The results show that you sometimes you just can’t beat the classic guitar / bass / drums / vocals combo.”

5. Best Friend (The Drums, 2010)

“With all the songs about love, you hardly ever get good, serious songs about friendship. I’m surprised the Drums pulled it off so well, its not cheesy at all! Brilliant album opener.”

4. Forever And Ever Amen (The Drums, 2010)

“This song just makes me happy. Can really sum up feelings for someone within a beautiful few minutes. This is an awesome, catchy, and pretty song.”

3. Money (Portamento, 2011)

“If the rest of the album is as good as this track, it´s probably going on my best of list by the end of the year. This is how you make a catchy pop summer tune. Incredible falsetto on the chorus.”

2. Book Of Revelation (Portamento, 2011)

“It’s the introduction to the album portamento. They welcome you into the album. It’s an interpretation of what his view on religion is. He believes that you need to make the most of life. He speaks of a girl who is influenced by her father or “religion”. He tells the girl to learn for herself and create freedom for her own well-being.”

Abysmal Thoughts by The Drums Reviews and Tracks - Metacritic

1. Days (Portamento, 2011)

“It’s like someone trying to do a simulation of what Joy Division would have sounded like if Curtis had decided someday to write a melodically happy song. Doesn’t have the deep effect of the dark ones, but it is still a pretty nice tune. (To notice, the drums are EXACTLY the same. The bass is pretty similar too. The voice is strangely different, sounds nice, but again, it’s not the same thing).”
