Ahead of their third album, Encyclopedia being released on 22nd September American surf rockers, Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham aka The Drums have revealed I Can’t Pretend as their new single. The bittersweet ode to the battle of heart versus head, I Can’t Pretend is only a glimpse into the bands new music.
“Encyclopedia is full of magic and surprise while maintaining a serious, more weighty tone throughout,” says Jonny. “We were feeling very angry, confused, and alone when we made this album; and we wanted to be very honest this time around, even if being honest meant making some people uncomfortable. We’ve left the beach for higher ground, always searching for hope.”
