INTERVIEW: THE DRUMS
Outside, a girl is crying hysterically. ‘I just need to meet The Drums!‘ she wails, before being taken aside for some consolation from a drunk friend. I enter a modest room, bare save for a worn pool table ,a few quilted sofas and three shy-looking men, each of whom warmly shake my hand. Had it not been for the thick black card blocking the window on the door, you wouldn’t have presumed you were in the presence of a band that, within the space of three years, had sold out a full UK tour, been voted as NME’s #1 Top Tip for the year, and sold 200,000 copies of their debut album.  FULL INTERVIEW HERE
