Had a listen to The Drums second album Portmento?

Days is the third single to be taken from the second album. Standing out for its sparse thorny guitar, foreboding harmonies and crest-fallen sentiment,  the track perfectly showcases The Drums’ knack for making the melancholy feel so alluring and cathartic.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with The Drums, the Indie-Pop 4 piece hail from Brooklyn and cite The WakeThe Smiths and Orange Juice as their major influences.

The single’s release date of February 27th 2012 also sees The Drums headline an NME Awards Show at London’s Roundhouse as part of a short UK tour. Support will come from Spector.

If you’re lucky enough to win the pair of tickets you can choose to see them at one of the following dates of their UK tour:

February 26: Liverpool, Academy 2
February 27: London, Roundhouse (NME Awards Show)
February 28: Oxford, Academy 2
