After Hours, The Drums
The Drums share songs from their long-awaited new album due out Fall 2014 at the Supernova Terrace, Novotel New York Times Square. The audience is not only treated to the group's new music, but also the stunning panoramic views of Times Square that the Supernova has to offer.
The performance is SOLD OUT but streaming LIVE here on Clocktower.org at 10:30pm EST.
The Drums emerged from Brooklyn via Florida in 2009 and initially caught the ear of the indie world with their Summertime! EP, an escapist collection of beach pop fantasies; tracks suffused with a wistful, longing nostalgia that never pander to cheap sentimentality. Early buzz led to a prestigious spot on the BBC Sound of 2010 shortlist, followed by a slot on the Shockwaves NME Tour in 2009, and the publication’s Phillip Hall Radar Award in early 2010. Their upcoming album is full of "magic and surprise while maintaining a serious, more weighty tone throughout," says founding band member Jonny Pierce.
After Hours, a collaboration between Times Square Arts and Clocktower, brings experiential, multimedia programming to select venues around Times Square.
Guests are also invited to view the Midnight Moment, the nightly digital art gallery on the electronic billboards of Times Square from 11:57 p.m. to midnight. The July Midnight Moment features Chris Doyle's film Bright Canyon. Midnight Moment is a monthly presentation of the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts.
