Earlier this week, we received some great news from CYP2 favorites, The Drums. While their follow up to last year’s brilliant, Portamento, release is still in progress; lead singer, Jonny Pierce, has announced that next year he will be releasing a solo record of his very own.

The first single, I Didn’t Realise, is a wayward step from the more driven and and vibrant Drums records, but in the best way possible. The intricate tonal swells and strategically placed digital wig outs give the track a very youthful feel, all the more emphasized by Pierce’s breathy falsetto. As the track maintains a steady course with a hollowed snare to guide them, Pierce has peeled back the layers, giving us a chance to fully immerse ourselves within his delicate world.

The yet to be named solo LP from Jonny Pierce is slated for an early February 2013 release with more details to be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out this performance from The Drums live at CYP2 last year.
