The Drums
Art imitates life in the Drum’s latest album—one minute the jovial beat makes for a great dance party, and in the next it's all tears in a nostalgic pop-lullaby. The album centers on a personal exploration of both the prime and lingering aftermath of love. Released after a nearly three-year break from music, the Brooklyn-based group's Abysmal Thoughts features unexpected time signatures and lyrics that somehow simultaneously comfort and induce a sensation of slow heartbreak. The Drums brings its relatable, life-like tunes to Seattle during as part of a worldwide tour. Neumos, $18-20
