Now along comes The Drums, Jonny Pierce’s celebrated indie-pop project, which digs back into yesterday’s efforts with a new song titled “Try.” The track is featured on The Drums’ April album Brutalism, and yeah, there’s certainly room for some sort of “if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again” joke in here somewhere.
“This song was originally going to be released back in 2014, but I didn’t feel the version I had was good enough to release,” Pierce says. “It was only after we re-recorded it with bending, haunting strings did the song feel good enough to let into the world. It’s a song about loving someone at peak level only to get little to nothing in return.”
Well we certainly know a lot about that. Try “Try” on for size below.
