Ibiza Rocks The Drums Interview
Ibiza Rocksgig, we caught up with White Isle newcomers The Drums to talk about why they are not won over by Ibiza just yet, how they feel about Morrissey being a fan of theirs and who they are tipping for success in the near future...
The Smiths were one of my first favourite bands when I was a kid, so it is really cool to know that.
Q. Would you ever consider working with him/collaborating with him?
A. I think that’s one of those things you leave to be it’s own thing. There are some things that you shouldn’t touch you know and that’s probably one of them. We don’t collaborate very often and he doesn’t seem to really either so maybe we can just have dinner some time. Admire from a distance.
Q. Rolling Stone magazine described you as one of the best indie pop debuts of the year. Who would you tip for success in the near future?
A. The Maccabees, Francis and the Lights. I think there’s a lot of bands right now that are pretty amazing. We’re friends with a band called The Violins that are about to do a tour with us in the UK that are really amazing. We also like a band in the UK called Two Wounded Birds. In America there’s a band called Young Friends and from Finland, Cats On Fire. All bands to look out for in 2010.
