Like any good TNT show, the Drums know drama. Two weeks later, lead singer Jonathan Pierce told NME that the band had composed "the best song we've ever written" the day after Kessler's departure. In the leadup to the release of the Drums' second album, Portamento, Pierce has sounded dismissive of the band's general career trajectory, claiming that they don't "have a very long shelf life as a band" and that they came close to breaking up this past June following "a lot of shouting matches. Accordingly, that grim outlook is reflected in their most recent work.

They continue to do so on Portamento, beginning their second album with a pair of jaunty kiss-offs to religion and exes. Book of Revelation is the album’s first and catchiest track, offering a decidedly secular take on living for the moment; Days, meanwhile, follows in the footsteps of the band’s idol Morrissey with lyrics that are so archly self-pitying that they become funny. Indeed, many of Portamento's songs are kind of miserable - or at least they would be, if these knowing, glum lyrics weren’t paired with naïve melodies and tempos that are too brisk to be mopey.
