Video: The Drums, “Let’s Go Surfing” + MP3

Look, we have no idea why everyone is suddenly making music about the beach, but it could be that advanced climate studies suggesting rising ocean levels over the next 50 years will move coasts inland and everyone who’s been shutout of beachfront property is getting psyched that their shitty apartment will soon be prime real estate. However, if all holds true, Florida will be underwater and The Drums, who hail from there (via Brooklyn—weird), will be screwed. So maybe that’s why they sound less wishful about being in the surf and more wish you were here—no lo-fi gunky daydreams, just hypercolored pop for actual beach parties. We kind of hate these guys, to be honest, but good for them.

    Who else is making music about the beach?

  2. kieran says:

    uh, swag surfing anyone?

  3. tom says:

    Yeah can’t say I’ve heard any other music about the beach.

    Strange how out of no where the paragraph jumps into ‘we kind of hate these guys’. Weird.

    Love the song though.

    Really? Wavves, Surfer Blood, Best Coast, Ducktails, Real Estate, all the Sincerely Yours bands, almost all exclusively make songs about the ocean or beach, not to mention the slew of lo-fi bands who just write songs that sound like beach music. Maybe we should tag it with “beach”? Also, the hate was joke hate because they are surfing while we surf the internet.

  5. Hey very good information. Will come back again – taking the feeds also, Thanks.
