The Drums with Stef Chura


Neumos (map) Capitol Hill
Mon., July 17, 8 p.m. 2017 All Ages


Jonny Pierce is the Drums—though as he’s let on in recent interviews, it already had been the case, for the most part, for years. (Cofounder and final remaining bandmate Jacob Graham left the group before the recording of the Drums’ most recent album, Abysmal Thoughts.) But something about the lack of obligation to bandmates, even as a formality, has liberated Pierce as a songwriter. Abysmal Thoughts contains some of his best material to date: 12 sun-bleached, guitar-and-analog-synth pop numbers that hark back to the band’s masterful 2010–11 run of The Drums and Portamento; the innocent, so-happy-it’s-painful sound, coupled with hurt, hopeless, and even tragic lyrics form the shadow we’ve found we’re so drawn to in bright light.
