The Drums might have hit the jackpot with 'Money'

the drums

 

Based on the latest news surrounding The Drums, I didn't expect to like anything new from the band. Yet their new single, 'Money', quickly placed itself in my top three favorite songs from the band. Much of that can be attributed to the fact that it sounds a lot like early Smiths and I'm pretty much a sucker for Morrissey's old group; the first twenty seconds of the song made me actually think it was a cover. But as the chorus kicks in with that rich blend of '80s British influenced indie pop with it's low-fi production, you realize its just the band making the music they always did, except a bit better.

If the production and the influences are kept the same, the writing and the structure have improved and the pop approach - especially in the chorus - seem to have a bit more thought. It's almost too pop and repetitive; but bordering on a blasé attitude followed by a a big chant, it's likely to become a festival anthem.
