Looks like Jonny Pierce the frontman of New York’s indie pop troop, The Drums is going to be releasing a solo album next year. After two successful albums, the lead singer and songwriter will be pushing the boundaries of his personal writing freedom.
In his new track “I Didn’t Realise” you can hear a slight departure from The Drums’ minimalist indie pop with the addition of vinyl scratches and some exerimental electronic beats. But his voice is still quite the catcher and should please fans of The Drums.
The singer released a statement:
“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.”
Produced, recorded and written all by the frontman, the album will see light early 2013.
