Drums man on being indie (or not)

Frontman of The Drums Jonathan Pierce has declared that the most unattractive thing in the world is being “indie for indie’s sake”.

He told The NME: “We’re ambitious. The big difference between us and a lot of other indie pop bands is we’re not afraid of success. I’ve always felt The Field Mice should be the biggest band in the world. I don’t want to hide them away for myself. That’s the difference between us and them, that’s the different mentality… I can’t think of anything more unattractive than wanting to be indie for indie’s sake”.

Because, as we all know, a desire to sell records is all you need in order to be successful.
