Geoff Lloyd of Absolute Radio in London spoke with The Drums about their music, playing Reading and Leeds festivals and being a success in the UK. “It seemed like a pretty natural way, things just happened here first,” Jonathan Pierce said about the band clicking in the UK before finding success back home in America. “So we just kind of went with it.
