Jimmy Brown - 3rd Sept 2010

For The Drums' down-tempo ballad Down By The Water, Brian and Brad Palmer and the band echo the Phil Spector-esque tones with this stark, monochrome promo.

Talking to Stereogum, the band explained the ideas behind it: "We wanted the video to directly reflect the song itself, and be as simple as possible. Both the video and song are a tribute to the girl groups of the 50's and 60's, a great inspiration to the band and one of the reasons we started it."
