The Drums just released the video for “Days” – the third single from Portamento, the well-received 2011 follow-up to their debut. The moody black and white aesthetic suits it perfectly. About halfway through it starts to fill out with more layers – building upon that basic foundation The Drums so often lay down – and it’s here that the repetition starts to work.
Vocalist Jonathan Pierce explains the track below:
“The song is about that moment when you realize that you are someone different from what you once were. Different needs, different desires. Different hopes and fears.”
Check out Danish producer Trentemøller’s remix of it below as well! Trentemøller has always seemed like a fairly talented guy in my books, and this remix only supports that view. I’m not even sure which version of the track I like more!
