akzeptables Stück der amerikanischen Indie Rockband, aus dem kommenden Drittling Lost In The Dream (2014), aufgerundete 3.5…
*****
Terrific spacey melodies with some wonderful riffs. Really enjoy those "WOOO!" moments as well. 4.75

Found myself getting lost throughout.

Cool song.

"Walk Of Life" 2014! Although this feels a little more fleshed out. Synth riff + guitar riff right near each other are equally gratifying, and then who doesn't love to shout out a 'WOO!' every now and then?

Fantastic example of wearing ones influences on your sleeve, yet still doing enough on its own to justify it.

Shoegazing lives on!! This is brilliant!!

Voorzichtigjes aan opgepakt door 3FM. Zo'n plaat waarvan je na een luisterbeurt weet dat het een hit moet worden. Al vrees ik dat 'ie iets te alternatief is. Zou best eens Megahit kunnen worden vrijdag.

Edit: +1.

Nu het 3FM Megahit is geworden misschien toch nog op weg om een hitje te worden. Dan ook een geweldig nummer!

▒ Een toch wat ééntonig nummerke uit begin december 2013 van de Amerikaanse indie rockformatie uit Philadelphia, opgericht in 2005: "The War On Drugs" !!! Was de voorloper van hun laatste studioalbum: "Lost In The Dream", dat ½ maart 2014 op de markt verscheen !!! Het eind van het plaatje redt toch de 4 sterren ☺!!!
*****
meestal is het geen goed teken als een plaatje een beetje door kabbelt, maar in dit geval is dat geen probleem. Aangenaam stukje muziek

Solid track!

Wooo

A nice alternative track!

I fear reviewing this because I feel my words will not bring justice to the sheer brilliance that this track is. Listening to this brings a huge instant nostalgia rush; the '80s synths are so beautiful, it takes me to another world. Couple that with the wonderful guitar riffs and you have a perfectly crafted melodic atmosphere. And then you add Adam Granduciel's dream vocals and the contemplative lyrics on top of that and you now have the perfect music that really describes you being "lost in a dream." Despite the nostalgia rush, this actually still sounds very fresh, calm but energetic, dreamy but still purposeful; it has the perfect blend of everything. You tell me that the album is like this too? Well no wonder it is highly rated by critics.

Also I cannot describe how pleased I am to see a live saxophonist as a part of this ensemble. This is music that you literally get lost in, in the most amazing way.

I am ashamedly late on this song, but thanks to the wonders of ACI, I was finally made to listen to it, and what a rewarding first listen it was. The first time I heard it, I thought 'wow this is really good', the second time was 'wow this is totally amazing'. I have now probably listened to this 20 times in the past 2 days, and I have not yet found a single thing to pick at about it.
The guitar riff next to the synth line is just awesome, and neither one overpowers the other, the vocals are perfectly suited to the music, that "WOO!" is just such a great kick into the instrumental breaks, the melody is so warm and homely and inviting, and I am totally in love with this in a way I haven't experienced since Swedish House Mafia's 'Don't You Worry Child'.

As for the influences here, it brings memories back for me of falling in love with Joy Division's 'Love Will Tear Us Apart', which would probably be in the top 30 of all time for me if I was to make such a chart right now. Already though, this doesn't have far to make up the gap to Joy Division's wonderful track. Absolute magic.

Cool!

Might grow on me more if I listen to it often in the next couple of weeks.

Schöne, vorantreibende Nummer. Aber der Opener gefällt mir noch eine Spur besser. 4.5
*****
Sehr schöner Track, und es rockt. Under the Pressure klingt im Vergleich langweiliger.
