The Drums - Portamento - ALBUM PREVIEW

Back on June 23rd The Drums uploaded a little YouTube clip titled "Portamento" which is also front and center on their updated website. It is 2:45 minutes in length and it showcases blurry clips of the band playing to start out then continues showing random black and white videos/pics through out. At one point in the video, chimes of POR TA MEN TO come in. The music to the video is very mysterious and dark, but at the same time it makes you want to hear more.

This has to be an indication that The Drums have something up their sleeve for the release of their sophomore album. It is unclear if the name of the album is actually going to be called 'Portamento'? Or if that is the title of an individual song? Rumours are floating around that lead singer Jonathan already stated that "Portamento" was the name of The Drums second album.

To Be Continued.....

  1. strange, very different, from before but interesting: I'm looking forward to this new album.

  2. If the sound stays consistant to this video it would be a completely new direction. I believe one of their band members left the band last year maybe that helped shift things around.

    I do like this sound I heard though makes me very curious...
