It’s been pretty well established that I’m not one for the indie rock and pop side of things. I like Interpol and The Strokes and that’s probably about as far as it extends.
But this ‘Poison Drum’ song has got me dancing. I have no idea what it is, but there’s something going on here that’s making me groove to unexpected lengths. Sometimes it’s better to put down the grating noise rock and pick up some of this cool, little rock stuff that causes a few gyrations. Sure, it’s a bit clean, but it’s got an inherent groove, and it’s a damn fine pop track. Likewise to The Preatures and Hunting Grounds, Gang of Youths have got something to them that makes them a little stickier and enduring.
