You'd be forgiven for expecting the second album from The Drums to be a religious experience. Portamento's cover art, a childhood snap of singer and lead songwriter Jonathan Pierce, shows the youngster with devilishly bad case of camera red-eye standing in front of some fairly unpleasant green wallpaper as a smiling older woman looks on; a crucifix hangs behind Pierce on the wall, positioned over his head like the Sword of Damocles. I've seen the world and there's no heaven and there's no hell," croons Pierce on that track – in subtlety the lyrics are probably on a par with some of Frank Turner's atheist hollering – but it turns out he's making a move, the sly dog: "And I believe that when we die we die, So let me love you. tonight, let me love you tonight.

Like any good TNT show, the Drums know drama. Two weeks later, lead singer Jonathan Pierce told NME that the band had composed "the best song we've ever written" the day after Kessler's departure. In the leadup to the release of the Drums' second album, Portamento, Pierce has sounded dismissive of the band's general career trajectory, claiming that they don't "have a very long shelf life as a band" and that they came close to breaking up this past June following "a lot of shouting matches. Accordingly, that grim outlook is reflected in their most recent work.
