Watch The War On Drugs' Video For 'Under The...


The War on Drugs' latest album Lost in the Dream and its transcendent single "Under the Pressure" has been one of The Alternate Side and WFUV's favorite releases of 2014. Now the song has a video, directed by Houmam, who has also guided videos for Beirut and Jesse Marchant. The nearly nine-minute clip is as simple, beautiful and direct as the track itself; just Adam Granduciel and his bandmates in a deserted house, intercut with rain-spattered windshields, shifting scenes of suburbia as seen from a car window and kaleidoscopic cascades of light and color.

Watch the video below.

The War on Drugs embark on a lengthy tour of North America, Europe, the UK and Australia beginning on September 4 at Raleigh's Hopscotch Music Festival.
