With their eagerly-awaited new album landing in the coming months, The Drums have now dropped yet another cut lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Isolette' follows on from the previously shared efforts 'Better', 'Obvious', 'I Want It All', and 'Plastic Envelope / Protect Him Always' in previewing their new LP 'Jonny', which is out on the 13th October via ANTI-Records.
Speaking about the new offering, the band's Jonny Pierce said, "My mother experienced what is referred to as a birth trauma when she was pregnant with me. A doctor broke her water without her consent, and she immediately went into painful, traumatic labor. I was born prematurely. They rushed me into an incubator where no one was able to touch me. Over the course of the pandemic, I took a lot of psych courses. In child psych, I learned that it is of utmost importance for a mother to have skin contact with her baby. It’s fundamental for bonding. We didn’t have that. The love and trust you get from that initial bonding influences how you feel love and trust in future relationships. My mother had been violated at the time of my birth and I believe I became a symbol of that trauma. She detached from me emotionally, so on many levels I often feel like I never really left the isolette.”
