"We kind of hate these guys, to be honest, but good for them." -- The FADER

"best new rock'n'roll band in town." -- The Deli Magazine

"Effortlessly mixes two disparate styles - Joy Division's brooding, post-punk vibe and a strong dose of Dick Dale - into a jumpy, three-minute jam that's catchier the H1N1" -- Rolling Stone

"Nobody knew what was in store; not the band and certainly not those in attendance. But the first-ever show by Florida's The Drums (Jonathan Pierce of Elkland and Jacob Graham of Horse Shoes) was arguably the highlight of the final day of NYC Popfest " -- Brooklyn Vegan

"Simultaneously dipping into the sounds of '50s surf culture and Factory Records for inspiration (for reals), the result is nothing short of drive-with-the-top-down amazing." -- 'Sup Magazine

"The Drums are one of the most refreshing bands we've seen in quite a long time. They'll be HUGE...This band just knows how to write a song that shimmers and sparkles and jingles and jangles. It sounded like every song they played was a potential summer hit." -- Oh My Rockness

"a massively likable, not to mention danceable, blend of gloomy 80s pop, 90s indie-pop and 50s surf-rock" -- L Magazine

"They are teen dreamers...their post-war optimism rides on the pink, paradise island surf" -- RCRD LBL

"pigeonhole this motherfuckers" -- Coke Machine Glow

"This band was so care-free and fun to watch that I had no desire to take photos or assess them critically at all." - New York Rock Market

"From start to finish, they play a totally refreshing set that shed a bright joyful light over the entire room." - NY PRESS
