The Drums have a new album 'Brutalism' due this spring

The Drums’ Jonny Pierce has a new album on the way,

’Brutalism’ will be released on 5th April via Anti-, with the first track ‘Body Chemistry’ streaming now.

Billed as “quite possibly the best collection of songs in the band's ten-year career”, the album was written and recorded between Upstate New York and a studio in Stinson Beach following Jonny’s divorce.

“For the year prior to writing this song, I had been dealing with an increased feeling of depression,” he says of teaser track ‘Body Chemistry’. “To counter that, I was doing all I could do to try and make myself feel good: implementing all sorts of self-care, going to therapy, eating well, exercising at the gym, taking a step back from partying, and focusing on positive relationships while weeding out the not-so-good ones.

"I still found myself weighed down with anxiety and depression. This song asks the question: Is this dull, sad feeling in my DNA? Is it part of my gene pool? Can it ever be corrected? I had been confronting some of my most stubborn demons, and I came to realize that confronting doesn’t always mean conquering.”

Kim Petras is a banger machine. ‘Do Me’, ‘Heart To Break’, ‘Feeling of Falling’, ‘I Don’t Want It At All’ - it’s just pop hit after pop hit. "I feel real confidence now," she explains, "and that’s really amazing."
