the war on drugsThe War on Drugs have released a video for their song “Under the Pressure” that somehow visually conveys exactly what it feels like to listen to the band’s music. You can’t help but picture being driven through soft-focus sleepy Middle American towns and suburbs passing by as the band’s dream-pop version of AM radio jams filter through the speaker and you drift in and out of consciousness. I also love the shots of the band quietly playing in a room, as if capturing the moment when a song comes through from some unknown place and lands on your guitar.

“Under the Pressure” comes from Lost in the Dream, which has already been called one of the best albums of the year by a lot of people.
