Since they laid down their blueprint for perfect, reverb-laden dream pop ditties with Let's Go Surfing, The Drums (aka NYC-based songwriter Jonny Pierce) have consistently dished up dewy-eyed, minimally constructed indie gems. With melancholy and wistfulness infused with their jangle and jaunt, in a not un-Smiths-y way, and aside from a brief and unexpected cameo from rapper Rico Nasty, the songs on Jonny don't fix a template that wasn't broken. Equal parts sad, sun, sex, and swoon, as the summer approaches, we're here for what The Drums are referring to as a "love letter to a galaxy of younger selves". - Flying Out

On his latest album as The Drums, New York-based indie pop artist Jonny Pierce plunges into the work of healing from childhood trauma and the long shadow it casts over adulthood.

The sparkling, eponymous Jonny unfurls a love letter to a galaxy of younger selves, all hungry to be nourished, all rejoicing now that they finally get to belong. Playful, heartbreaking, raucous, and serene all in turn, Jonny embraces the mess of life in all its facets. It renders the magic that happens when you fall in love with yourself down to the marrow.

Soaring to alt-pop prestige on arrival, The Drums have released studio albums that deftly walk the line of aching melancholy and irresistible pop sensibilities, presented through a kaleidoscope of pastel guitars, reverb, modular synthesizers and drum machines. It’s a sound that’s wholly unique, and unmistakably The Drums.
