The first single from their upcoming album, due this summer, Work Drugs drop off an overwhelmingly positive slice of alternative pop that’ll brighten anyone’s day (unless you’re naturally a bit miserable). Crisp percussion drives this one along at a good pace, whilst vibrant electro-esque synths buzz through the track and lashings of smooth guitar work add a layer of organic instrumentation. I’ve not done justice to the depth of this upbeat production as there’s a lot going on there, hitting the right spots for both mainstream listeners and casual fans, and also infusing the catchy vocals with a ton of energy. Those vocals are relatively laidback for the verses, building to a hook that really defines the track, with multi-layered vocals that enhance the singalong vibe, and their overall synergy with the production creates an inescapably feelgood track. It’ll be too squeaky-clean for many, but for the rest it’s an easy addition to a summer playlist. Shout out to SKOA on the find.
