The Drums Cover Arcade Fire

Text

Brooklyn Best of What’s Nexters The Drums recently paid tribute to the first single from the Arcade Fire’s new album The Suburbs, the Google Mappable “We Used to Wait.”

Their version of the song plays less epic and a little dancier than the original. Listen to it on Stereogum.

The Drums will drop their self-titled debut full-length on Sept. 14 via Downtown Records (though it is currently available on iTunes).

While the ode to the Arcade Fire doesn’t appear on The Drums, “Let’s Go Surfing” does, and you can watch the video for that one below:
