"Magic Mountain," the first new song by The Drums in three years, displays a more in-your-face sound than fans may have come to expect from the indie pop duo. The new video for the track, directed by the band themselves, is equally offbeat. Shot by Gorjan Lauseger, the black-and-white video finds the pair deep in the wilderness, with Drums' frontman Jonny Pierce donning armour and wielding a Game of Thrones-style sword. Also featured are big billowing clouds, hovering crystals and fireworks that seem to shoot directly from the band's hands.
"Magic Mountain" is the lead single from Encyclopedia, due September 23.
