The Drums have returned with two new tracks, ‘Plastic Envelope’ and ‘Protect Him Always’. They follow last month’s ‘I Want It All’, which marked the project’s first new music in three years. Take a listen below.
“‘Plastic Envelope’ is about the pain that comes when your trust has been violated and the dread of not knowing if you could open your heart again the same way,” founder Jonny Pierce explained in a statement. “The second song, ‘Protect Him Always,’ is an apology to the young boy in me, who I try my best to protect, knowing that when I get hurt, he gets hurt all over again.”
The Drums’ latest LP was 2019’s Brutalism.
