Ed Lines (The Drums – Down by the Water)
Following on from the review of New York indie band The Drums at the Roundhouse last week, I thought for your random trivia today, you would like to know that a portamento, the title of their second album, is a 17th century Italian term denoting a vocal slide between two pitches. So, now you know.
A track by The Drums that you should listen to? Well, if you haven’t seen the blog, why not chill with this classic from the first EP, ‘Down by the Water’. Beautiful.
