The Drums Release Biting New Single, "626 Bedford Avenue"

Jonny Pierce, aka The Drums, has entered a brave new lyrical world with an introspective new track titled “626 Bedford Avenue” from the forthcoming Brutalism, out April 5 on ANTI- Records.

The new album was announced back in January with the release of its lead single “Body Chemistry,” and both tracks highlight the vulnerability of Pierce’s vision for the future of his synth-driven project.

Pierce contextualized “626 Bedford Avenue” in a statement:

I’m a big believer in making yourself vulnerable in personal relationships, and keeping your guard down. This song talks about how I sometimes make myself fully emotionally available to people who can’t reciprocate because of their own insecurities, and the frustration that ensues … This song is my tongue-in-cheek exploration of those ideas—being kind, not taking shit from anyone, and learning to hold people accountable for their own choices, while still holding some empathy for them.
