Noise Narcs Promise: Whistling

I’m a child of the 80s, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. New Wave, for the most part, isn’t my thing. But you know what is my thing?


And this song, from neo-New Wave Brooklyn group The Drums whose debut album dropped today, has it in spades. Even better: it’s surf rock. So another Noise Narcs promise: awesome songs that involve whistling (no, I’m not looking at you Juelz Sanatana).

Update: Sorry about the funky link. Song should work now.
The Drums, “Let’s Go Surfing”

See also: Blood Feathers’ “Sea Legs” (have I really not posted on Blood Feathers? Unacceptable.), Peter, Bjorn, and John’s “Young Folks”, and everything from this Spinner list except the Paul Simon. And wet your whistle in the comments with other whistling songs.
