After premiering on Radio 1 last night, the first single to be taken from The Drums‘ upcoming second album, ‘Portamento‘ (September 12th, 2011) is currently streaming online. The new track, ‘Money‘, promises to brighten your day and bolster your bank account in equal measure; and is officially released on September 5th, 2011.

The Drums are a three-piece synthpop outfit from Brooklyn via Florida, who initially caused a stir in the indie world with their ‘Summertime‘ EP – a collection of beach pop fantasies which would shimmer just nicely against the high-gloss, high-drama backdrop of the Sunshine State. They released their self-titled debut album in June 2010, which has gone on to sell 200,000 copies worldwide, reflecting the band’s universal appeal across the globe. The highly anticipated second album promises to be more autobiographical in its lyrical content and to reflect the band’s sonic expansiveness, whilst remaining true to their emotional coherence and boundless energy.

Portamento‘ is an altogether more complex and ultimately rewarding listen than their debut album. The 12-track record features the following tracks: Book of Revelation / Days / What You Were / Money / Hard to Love / I Don’t Know How To Love / Searching For Heaven / Please Don’t Leave / If He Likes It Let Him Do It / I Need A Doctor / In The Cold / How It Ended.

The band are set to play a couple of festival dates across the summer, including Lovebox Festival in London (July 16th, 2011) and Bestival in the Isle of Wight (September 8th, 2011). Check them out if you’re looking for a hearty side of synthpop with your indie main.
