The War on Drugs Performs “Red Eyes”

Rock along to the live performance on KEXP.

November 10, 2016

KEXP presents The War on Drugs performing “Red Eyes” live in the KEXP studio. Recorded March 28, 2014.

Though the new album is called Lost in the Dream, The War on Drugs’ Adam Granduciel seems like he’s just woken up from one. While it’s only the band’s third LP since forming nine years ago, Lost in the Dream is leaps and bounds ahead of its predecessors, as Granduciel transforms his oft-meandering ambience of navel-gazing Americana into more propulsive and grand arrangements. Even in the very small in-studio space at KEXP, The War on Drugs sound epic as they channel their heroes of the ‘80s — Bruce Springsteen, The Waterboys, Dire Straights — and nearly tear the heart right out of host Cheryl Waters.
