The Daily Krapht – The War On Drugs – “Red Eyes”
If you are searching for a listen as smooth as Billy Dee Williams, as peppy as Kevin Bacon’s dancing shoes and as silky sexy as James Earl Jones then the new The War On Drugs album is for you. Their single “Red Eyes” will make you fly high, no drugs involved either. The layer of synch, echoed pants of the vocalist and rock-steady drumming creates a toxic atmosphere that sinks deep with in your heart. Like all good songs there is a kick too that sends this piece soaring like a musical treat.
Each listen gets better and better as the song just builds upon it’s self. The War On Drugs previous release, Slave Ambient back in 2011 was praised for their redefining of the “shoegaze” genre. One writer in particular said that “…Americana, broken into tiny pieces” meaning that The War On Drugs has taken back American Indie to an art form. We could go on and tell you where they are from, whom they sound like or where they are touring but they are such a musical treat — it’s just best to listen. Below you’ll find their single from Lost In A Dream, “Red Eyes” and a link their site where you can purchase the album … today!
