The War on Drugs

"Come to the City" b/w "Don't Fear the Ghost"

Secretly Canadian [2012]

This Philly indie group's latest single, Come to the City incorporates a lot of interesting sounds reminiscent of some classic artists that I enjoy. The A side, "Come to the City" has a David Bowie "Heroes" vibe with some washy guitars that could almost be the product of a "too stoned" U2 studio session. The song kept my interest and encouraged me to check out the B side, "Don't Fear the Ghost". "Don't Fear the Ghost" is a little more disjointed and dreamy, think Stone Roses song you never heard covered by Spacemen 3. With all of this said, I give this single two thumbs up.
