THIS JUST IN: “Under The Pressure” Music Video // The War On Drugs
Flickering filters, abandoned landscape, lush guitar riffs all play vital roles in this dreamy, long form music video for The War On Drug’s latest track, “Under the Pressure.” This tune fits the theme of their album (“Lost In The Dream”) like a glove. Each band member is playing in solitude while the camera closes in and zooms out on them, and the film varies between shots of the musicians playing in abandoned areas and washed out, suburban America. Interestingly enough, the “abandoned house” is apparently where singer/guitarist Adam Granduciel lives.
I reckon if Jack Kerouac had Spotify, this would have definitely made it on his playlist during his soul-seeking trek across the states.
