TRACK REVIEW: The Drums – Magic Mountain

140715-the-drums-magic-mountain-1

The Drums are back with their first new music in 3 years. New song ‘Magic Mountain’ was posted online a few days ago but there is no word of a new album as of yet.

The Drums, for me, have always been an ‘almost’ band. I really enjoyed their ‘Summertime EP’ and their subsequent singles have been pretty decent, especially “Best Friend’ and ‘Money’. Unfortunatley, their full length albums, both 2010’s The Drums and 2011’s Portamento have been quite underwhelming.

‘Magic Mountain’ is a slightly different beast to what you may have been expecting, although it’s still very much The Drums, the die-hard fans may be disappointed to hear that the song isn’t as catchy or as hook dependant as previous singles and although I feel the song is a step in the right direction, ‘Magic Mountain’ doesn’t do a lot for me. Check it out below.
