The Drums: Head of the Horse

A third tease from The Drums’ forthcoming album Abysmal Thoughts (out 16 June), “Head of the Horse” might just be one of the band’s most delicate, sincere and direct. Lead singer Jonny Pierce addresses the conflict he felt as a gay child in the suburbs with two Pentecostal preacher parents. It’s a catchy track with truthful substance that puts the group’s airy, surf rock vibes to good use.
