Published Jun 07, 2012In the second clip from the Drums' acoustic set backstage at the Phoenix Concert Theatre, the Brooklyn indie pop darlings play "Money," the lead single off their latest album Portamento.
The bouncy tune begins with some fast-paced guitar picking before lead singer Jonathan Pierce dives headfirst into his mopey drawl. "I want to buy you something but I don't have any money," goes the earworm chorus, somehow managing to be both upbeat and a bit bummed out. Jacob Graham adorns the song with his melodica, alternating between a staccato rhythm and prolonged chords.
