I'd say there's more drive than you'd get with hypnotic music and that's what I like about it.

Every time I hear this I think it's Bryan Adams... for whatever that's worth.

From what I can tell, the name of the band is irrelevant to the music.  

If anything Adam Granduciel has won his own personal war on 'drugs'.   He quit them all.  

But given that the actual War on Drugs in North America is currently being rolled back, the timing is not bad.

The current occupant denies it too. So do his Russian friends.
Aside from that, I quite like the tack.

Wandering back through the comments for WoD "Red Eyes" it seems the comparison has been noted elsewhere too...

It vaguely reminds me of "Driver's Seat" by Sniff 'n' The Tears.  I'm not sure why, maybe just the overall production sound or the singer's voice and phrasing.  Cool song.

Everytime I hear a new tune from this band, the more and more I like them.  Can't help but hear Jude Cole in this guys voice, another amazing talent.

What I like best about TWOD is how similar the vocalization and lyrics/song structures are to (one of my all time favs) Bob Dylan; it's almost like BD were Forever Young and started a whole new career with a new band name!

.....



The best about TWOD is that the vocals sound a little like Bob Dylan but in actual fact Adam Granduciel can really sing.  That and the 'production values' are much, much better.

Note I say this as a big fan and admirer of Bob Dylan. 

Once again, looking forward to the new album/CD release.

 
I'm also looking forward to the coming new release, TWOD is neck & neck with Elbow and Spoon as my recent favorite groups.  And yes, I've been looking into Adam a bit and he's a freaking stud!  8 bumped up to a 9....Long Live RP!

Not just to be 1st to comment....I do want to say I've really enjoyed hearing some of The War on Drugs' music lately.  Another gem unearthed for me from listening to RP.  This track is a bit more upbeat than others, and at only 5:37 a bit shorter than others. 

What I like best about TWOD is how similar the vocalization and lyrics/song structures are to (one of my all time favs) Bob Dylan; it's almost like BD were Forever Young and started a whole new career with a new band name!

Long Live RP for ALL of the great music, old and new, familiar and not.
