Work Drugs revisit 2016 in new single “For The Year”
Had enough of 2016? Work Drugs sure did. The Philadelphia-based indie soft pop (self-stylized “sedative wave/smooth-fi”) duo has released a new single “For The Year” ahead of their upcoming record Flaunt the Imperfection, set for release on August 11th and currently available for preorder.
“For The Year” is a slower, more somber track that is accompanied by a video featuring a compilation of the worst and most memorable moments that made it into the media in 2016, a year that seemed relentless in tragedy and scandal. About the track, the band writes that it “is a song that pays homage to some of the musical heroes lost in 2016. Most notably, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, and Prince. All three individuals maintained a strong sense of musical identity throughout their lives, and all three worked right up to the end. It was with that spirit in mind that this song was written.”
