The Drums’ Jonny Pierce talks “self-indulgent” solo debut

Jonny Pierce

The Drums’ own Jonny Pierce has been moonlighting as a solo artist; and now wants us all to appreciate that he has a self-penned and mastered debut LP on its way.

A modest Pierce, who is now ‘teasing’ the record via new track ‘I Didn’t Realise’, has this to say: “Some might say it’s strange for a man to bare his soul the way I do on this album, but I wanted to do something that exposed me for who I am even more so than anything I have done with The Drums… I wanted to be as self-indulgent as possible with this album. This is pop done the way I think it should be done”.
