The Drums BBC Sound of 2010

These guys are part of one of the most talked-about new guitar bands of recent years. The Drums offer the unlikeliest of hybrids, for instance on some tracks they sound like the Beach Boys crossed with The Cure. Let’s Go Surfing, their debut single, released on Moshi Moshi (who put out early records by Hot Chip, Florence and the Machine, Friendly Fires and Kate Nash), features New Order-style trebly, melodic bass, Ventures-esque guitar, and what many are calling “the most infectious whistling line since Peter, Bjorn and John.”
