Philly rockers Flightschool search for self-confidence amid the swagger of "Dr.'s Orders" - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Philly four-piece Flightschool have been churning out riff-tastic rock and roll for the past decade in the form of singles, EPs, and blazing live shows. Now, the band will release its first full-length album early next year.

The first taste of that as-yet-untitled record is newly out in the world today — a raucous single called “Dr.’s Orders” that channels Arctic Monkeys, The Black Keys, Mudhoney, and STP into a three-minute burner about social anxiety. As the band describes it, the confident and commanding performance is contrasted with lyrics about somebody who struggles with confidence: it’s “the story of a man who finds himself in an art gallery, unable to enjoy the paintings and people around him.”

The discomfort is palpable as the character spars with his partner — “I criticize all these abominations / you always ask me what’s your deal” — and as the song progresses, he tries to make sense of the reasons behind his emotions.

Listen to the extremely catchy rocker “Dr.’s Orders” below.
