I’m not normally ‘big’ on established bands / artists, reasoning that they don’t really need the likes of LOUD HORIZON to push their work for them ….. but this on’e so damned good, I’ve just got to post it!
Jonny Pierce, frontman for The Drums, has released a brand new song and video for “I Didn’t Realise,” a track from his forthcoming debut solo album. Written, recorded and produced entirely by Jonny himself, the album will be released some time next year.
Jonny says of his first solo offering:
“Some might say it’s strange for a man to bare his soul the way I do on this album but I wanted to do something that exposed me for who I am even more so than anything I have done with The Drums … I wanted to be as self-indulgent as possible with this album. This is pop done the way I think it should be done.”
There’s something darkly hypnotic about this track, with touches of droned Krautrock colliding with Eighties styled Ultravox and an early Charlatans ‘b-side’ feel, even. Possibly even a little Dark Horses influence in there too? It’s pretty inventive, and just what we could all do with right now.
I like it!
