The War on Drugs formed in 2005 in Philadelphia, a city famed for doo-wop music and smooth pop, not the eclectic, neopsychedelic sounds of this indie rock band. The nasal twang and folksy cadence of Adam Graduciel’s voice gives many of their songs the feel of Bob Dylan fronting The Byrds. The group’s grittier lyrics, so often reminiscent of a streetwise and hungry Bruce Springsteen, match up perfectly with their post-punk approach to music, making The War on Drugs a solid touring act on the indie rock scene.
Their first album, 2008’s well-received Wagonwheel Blues, is a collection of home recordings and bits of sound set to a mesmerizing beat and a driving rhythm guitar that create a whole greater than the sum of its part. Although Pitchfork Media awarded Wagonwheel Blues its New Music Award, it failed to chart, The War on Drugs’ second effort, the surprisingly uplifting Slave Ambient, went all the way to number four on the Billboard 200. The twelve-track album became a critical darling, and several singles, including Baby Missiles and Come to the City, proved to be fan favorites. The War on Drugs’ third release, Lost in the Dream, reflects the loneliness of life on the road. It proved to be a big hit in the United Kingdom, peaking at number two on the charts, and saw the single Red Eyes get significant US and worldwide airplay. Spin magazine named Lost in the Dream the best album of 2014. Their repeated brushes with success, inventive instrumentals, and gutsy studio choices have at last landed The War on Drugs on a major label pushing the group toward bigger, if no less dedicated audiences.
