LIFE have shared a video for their new single ‘The Drug’, lifted from their forthcoming third record North East Coastal Town. It follows previous offerings ‘Big Moon Lake’ and ‘Friends Without Names’. Check out the clip, directed by longtime collaborator Luke Hallett and drummer Stewart Baxter, below.
“’The Drug’ is a love song,” vocalist Mez Green said in a statement. “I wrote the lyrics in the cold mountains of Italy before taking them into the room with the band. ‘The Drug I needed has always been here, the drug I needed has always been near” is, for me, realising that loved ones and those that love you, no matter where you are, can always be present. I’d never really believed this before and whilst this purity is at the lyrical heart of the song musically the band decided to inject flecks of dance, pop, harmonics, and dirty pulses to give the song drive, repetition and jerk-ability.”
North East Coastal Town is set for release on August 19 via the Liquid Label.
