The War on Drugs – “Come to the City” (Official Music Video) from Urban Outfitters on Vimeo.
Today, Urban Outfitters premiered the video for The War on Drugs’ charging, triumphant “Come to the City” from the band’s excellent forthcoming sophomore album Slave Ambient. It follows a gang of Los Angelenas doing some wilding on the outskirts of LA. The video was produced by Urban Outfitters and directed by Peter J. Brant. Video Fun Fact: One of the women who appears in the video is a former resident of our hometown, Bloomington, Ind.
Today through the release of Slave Ambient, UO will also be exclusively hosting a stream of the entire album. You can hear why UK’s Uncut, in a five-star review of the album, said: “Granduciel’s burgeoning compositional skills and his vast attention to intricately wrought sonic structures make Slave Ambient rich with things money alone can’t buy — wit, imagination, ambition, excitement, that kind of thing. It’s a thrill. Something’s happening wherever you turn on tracks that are dense with detail and brilliant accumulations of incident, but never overwrought or too busy, sheer grace their common link.”
