Video: The Drums – “What You Were” (Live)


In The Drums‘ music video for “Money”, the first track to appear from their upcoming album Portamento, the Brooklyn-based rockers gave us an inside look into their practice space/studio. Now, we can get a slightly creepier and lo-fi peek at their beloved hole in the wall with their live performance of Portamento track “What You Were”. The video, available above via Sidewalk Hustle, features the band shot through the lens of some security camera, strumming through yet-another ’80s-inspired New Wave rock number full of forlorn. This is pure, unadulterated voyeurism at its finest.

Check the band out on tour in the U.S. starting in October. Portamento hits stores on September 13th via Frenchkiss Records (pre-orders available here).
