The War On Drugs - "Red Eyes" video

Right now, Stereogum’s comments section is extremely geeked up over Lost In The Dream, the forthcoming album from Philly Americana stoners the War On Drugs, and with good reason; the LP hits the same majestic highs as the former War On Drugs member Kurt Vile found on last year’s Wakin On A Pretty Daze. The new video for “Red Eyes,” the blearily excellent first single from Lost In The Dream, has the members of the bands judging a series of hapless talent-show contestants. It’s cute and good-natured, and while it won’t change your morning or anything, it’s a good excuse to revisit the song. Anthony Zagarella directs; watch it below.

Lost In The Dream is out 3/18/14 via Secretly Canadian.

  1. Disappointed with this video since “Red Eyes” is such an incredible song, if I’m honest.

    • Agreed. It’s cute, but I hope they’re saving the big guns for an Under The Pressure video.

    • Yeah it doesn’t seem to fit the vibe of the song. But if the members of War on Drugs are goofy dudes then it expresses that pretty well.

      I suppose if you smoked enough you could read into it as a satirical take on singing reality shows with judges.

  2. great song, shit video
