The War On Drugs talk about music, performing and life in Philadelphia with Minneapolis’ The Current
Philadelphia space rock heroes The War On Drugs recently performed on air for The Current in Minneapolis and talked about their latest album, Lost In A Dream. The band has been recognized on the national level for bringing enormous energy to the stage – something that radio host, Jill O’Reilly, notes right off the bat.
The interview ensues with playful banter from frontman Adam Granduciel and spot-on performances from their album, including “An Ocean In Between the Waves” and “Eyes to the Wind”. Granduciel also takes time to elaborate on some of the qualities of Philadelphia that drew him to make the move there from Massachusetts. He explains how Philadelphia has a “creative spark” that keeps the musical energy alive and notes the supportive and affordable nature of the city that allows for musicians to focus on music. The group finishes off the interview with a fantastic take on Bob Dylan’s “Tangled Up In Blue”.
