简评:

"I know it's hard, but I understand you, just take my hand."

从"Down By The Water"的温柔缱绻到"Let's Go Surfing"的活泼雀跃,从"I Hope Time Doesn't Change Him"的晦暗悲伤再到新专《Brutalism》中的直白欲望,The Drums见证了其灵魂人物Jonathan Pierce的人生起伏与情感挣扎。在媒体的笔下,他戏剧性的古怪骄傲时常成为争议焦点,但人们总是不得不承认,The Drums音乐总是拥有直入人心的抓耳魅力。

The Drums于2008年底成立于纽约布鲁克林,是一支由Jonathan Pierce主导的美国独立流行乐队,至今一共发行了五张专辑,作品涵盖了从冲浪摇滚到噪响流行多种风格,吉他混响与电子音符都在The Drums的音乐中扮演着重要的角色。

2009年12月,成立短短一年的The Drums就锋芒毕露,荣登BBC Sound of 2010,并在Pitchfork读者调查中成为了2010年最值得期待的乐队。此外,NME和Clash杂志都将The Drums列为2010年"最值得期待的乐队",同时它也是Shazam(全球最流行的听歌识曲app)2009年搜索次数最多的乐队。2010年6月,The Drums正式发行了第一张同名专辑,其中包括了"Let's Go Surfing", "Best Friend" 和 "Down By The Water"等经典单曲。

2011年9月,乐队发行的第二张专辑《Portamento》呈现了乐队成员对合成器先驱Kraftwerk和Anything Box等乐队的致敬。专辑中以戏谑的旋律与歌词探讨美丑、生死、世事变迁等沉重主题,其中包含稚气浪漫的"Money"和极其精巧动人的"Days"。

2014年,The Drums发行第三张专辑专辑《Encyclopedia》。这张专辑广受赞誉,是乐队风格进化的又一个里程碑,不管是"Magic Mountain中"紧绷、延长的吉他旋律、自由散落的铃鼓和快节奏的鼓点,或是阴郁沉思之作"I Hope Time Doesn't Change Him",这张专辑继承了The Drums一以贯之的特点:奇怪而有趣。

乐队经历了多次重大的成员变迁,发展至今,The Drums基本已经成为其主创Jonathan Pierce的个人项目。2017年的专辑《Abysmal Thoughts》算是他个人全盘操刀的首张作品。"我可以把男朋友闻破球鞋的照片用来当专辑封面,不用征求任何人的许可。"这张专辑充满80年代独立流行的气息,其中点缀着不少快乐与阴暗交织的黑色幽默。

今年四月发行的新专《Brutalism》是Jonathan Pierce在流行风格道路上又一次蜕变,也在情感上标识着他走出至暗时刻,直面真我的成果。"这张专辑是写给我自己的,而不是写给'你'的。"Jonathan摆脱心碎和抑郁中的挣扎,在积极寻求心理治疗之后,在音乐中用全新的眼光审视过往。

这张专辑中,"小鼓"乐队不仅首次在录音中加入了真鼓,还请来了Chris Coady(曾担任Beach House、Blonde Redhead的制作人)进行后期混音。The Drums大方拥抱了简单直接的情感表达和流行风格的律动与饱和度,在纯挚情绪的主题之上加入复杂精致的流行旋律,如同照进人心焦虑、孤独角落的阳光。Jonathan也坦言,同性恋是他如今作为一个艺术家不可或缺的标识之一,现在的他能更勇敢地在音乐中探讨欲望、性吸引等主题。

今年十一月,蜕变之后的The Drums即将带着全新的节拍再度来华,来现场跟着小鼓队起舞吧!

The Drums are an American indie pop band from New York City, currently oriented by its founding member Jonathan Pierce. Known for its quirky surf rock riffs, melodramatic tender melodies and catchy lyrics, the band cite their major influences as Beach Boys, The Wake, The Smiths, Joy Division/New Order.

In December 2009 the band was shortlisted as one of the 15 music acts for the BBC Sound of 2010. Subsequently, they placed at No. 5 in this list on 4 January 2010. In NME's first issue of 2010 they were named number 1 in the magazine's top tips for the year as well as in Clash Magazine's Tips for 2010. The Drums were also voted "Best Hope for 2010" in Pitchfork's 2009 Readers' Poll. They won the Hall Radar Award for 2010 and were the most Shazamed band of 2009.

In 2019, the Drums released their fifth LP Brutalism, which is rooted in an emotional rawness but its layers are soft, intricate and warm, full of frivolous and exquisitely crafted pop songs that blast sunlight and high energy in the face of anxiety, solitude and crippling self-doubt. Jonathan Pierce brought in Chris Coady (Beach House, Future Islands, Amen Dunes) to mix it. It's also the first Drums record with a live drummer. Delegating freed up Pierce's time to produce a more specific vision. Now Jonathan Pierce looks at Brutalism as an extension of self-care, sacrificing ego in favor of tenderness -- "In order to take care of yourself you have to ask questions. Those are the things I needed to confront."
