The Drums

Your new favourite band

Reverb lovin' Brooklynites and darlings of the indie scene for 2010, The Drums return to the UK to play Reading and Leeds. Founding members Jonathan Pierce and Jacob Graham first dabbled in electro with their former groups Goat Explosion and Elkland, joining forces with drummer Connor Hanwick and guitarist Adam Kessler to become The Drums in 2008. Their escapist indie pop made them the most hyped band of the season and they'll add some much anticipated sunshine to the lineup at Reading and Leeds when they take to the NME/Radio 1 Stage.
