Swangin' and Bangin'


After the past month of hearing about The Drums photo session with Hedi Slimane, I finally got a glimpse of the photographs, taken in November (they've been up for a while, but I'm just really slow). Jon and Jacob told me over dinner a couple weeks ago that when Hedi came to the shoot after meeting them, he wore a Letterman jacket, a signature Drums wardrobe staple. Apparently, he's been a major fan since he first heard them, and even his style was inflected with a touch of their influence. Anyway, if you haven't sought them out yet, you absolutely must make sure to find their debut EP "Summertime!" on iTunes. Here are a few of my favorite shots of the boys, see the rest on Hedi's Fashion Diary.

I'm so jealous you know them. Every time I see your posts on them I do swoon a bit since their music is so great.

I'll have to take a listen to their music. Those photos are great tho, Heidi never ceases to impress with her photos. If they sound as good as they look i'll def be a fan!
