LISTEN: The Drums — “Let’s Go Surfing”

Reminiscent of 80’s punk (think The Dead Milkmen), The Drums stir up the indie pot with its track, “Let’s Go Surfing.” The song is a jingle jangle of beach infused laziness, a mind numbingly catchy chorus, and an upbeat melody.

Lead Singer, Jonathan Pierce said in an interview with Huck magazine, “We got really inspired by those girl group sounds of the fifties and sixties…I think the more you can simplify something, the stronger it gets and the more true the message is.”

“Lets Go Surfing” is the perfect example of this simplicity with lyrics like, “Oh Mama/I wanna go surfing/Oh mama/I don’t care about nothing.”
