I was looking for the video for “Magic Mountain”, the eerily etheric new single from Brooklyn based indie duo The Drums when I was preparing last week’s Monday Magick entry. At that time only the audio was available online though, so they didn’t get the nod.
Within a few days the clip, a sort of Anton Corbijn-esque black and white affair with mild supernatural/occult overtones, was online. It suits the song, which is disjointed and jangly in a very early ’80s Post-Punk but Prot-Goth way, perfectly.
“Magic Mountain” is the first single from The Drums forthcoming third LP ‘Encyclopedia’, which is out September 23rd on Minor Records.
