We’ve been listening to their self-titled debut album for quite some time now and totally dig on their fusion of 50s and 60s pop gems amongst other aural delights. With that sweet and classic boy band/girl group sound from yesteryear, The Drums have released a new video for their song “Down By The Water.” For a blast to the past a la Drums, check out their new video below.


The band’s co-headlining tour with Surfer Blood starts September 11. For more information on The Drums, click here!

The Drums self-titled album will be released September 11, 2010 via Downtown Records. Pre-order the album here.
