The Drums

April 30
7:30 p.m.
Indie Pop, Indie Rock

Originally emerging in 2009 as a four-piece group generating big indie-pop promise thanks to their whistling-infused earworm of a debut single, “Let’s Go Surfing,” the Drums has been the solo project of Jonny Pierce since 2016. Following 2017’s Abysmal Thoughts, the fifth Drums album and Pierce’s second as a one-man band, Brutalism, came earlier this month, and even with its title and lyrical vulnerability, it’s musically buoyant and consistently tuneful.
