Meet Work Drugs

28 Dec

If you like the yacht rock stylings of Hall and Oates, the Doobies (with Michael McDonald), and Christopher Cross, and you also like the neo-yacht rock sounds of jams like “Round And Round” by Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti and various works by Teendaze, Memoryhouse and this chillwave hipster then you’ll want to dig in to the “smooth-fi” of Philly’s Work Drugs, Benjamin Louisiana and Thomas Crystal. Until we can confirm, we’re not too sure if these are the band’s real names or just stage names, but what we love most in inside the grooves of this first song they’ve released, “Third Wave.”
Download the song below; watch the aquatic daydream video. “The sea reminds me we’re not in love,” sing the band in dreamy melodic bliss, recalling the ridiculously catchy and lovelorn “Ooh, you’ll wait a long time for me/Ooh, you’ll wait a long time” part of 10CC’s “I’m Not In Love.” Surf’s up for Work Drugs.
