The Drums - I Can't Pretend

The Drums released their third album Encyclopedia last month, and I'm not quite sure why, but it's received a somewhat mellow response.  They've narrowed down the band lineup to a duo and switched up their sound ever so slightly, but the record is pretty fantastic.  One of the highlights is "I Can't Pretend", a bouncing single that already sounds like a Drums classic.
The chord progression intro that runs underneath the entire track is mesmerizing.  There's an equally fitting music video, directed by BRTHR, that debuted a short while ago.  It shows Jonny and Jacob through a variety of settings, but there's a clear aquatic theme.  You can check it out below and grab the full album here.
