WAR ON DRUGS

WATCH NEW VIDEO FOR THE WAR ON DRUGS’ “BROTHERS”

The War On Drugs are excited to share the brand new video for “Brothers,” one of the many highlights off their

stellar Slave Ambient. Following the more kaleidoscopic videos for “Baby Missiles” and “Come to the City,” the “Brothers” video definitely takes a different approach with its bleak western narrative. More on the “Brothers” video from the director team of Brewer, a pair of brothers (Ben and Alex), actually, is below.

WATCH/POST/SHARE THE VIDEO FOR THE WAR ON DRUGS’ “BROTHERS” (DIR. BREWER) –

“We kept picturing it as the soundtrack to a dark western like Pat Garrett & Billy the

Kid or Unforgiven. That is where the deranged T.V cowboy character came from. We

wanted the video to feel like the most exciting five minutes taken out of a longer movie.The biggest challenge in the filming was how to make the old cowboy (played by David Weindel) seem threatening, and how to make the nurse (played by Tallie Medel) seem like she was dealing with the situation the way a normal person might really handle such a nightmare.”

The War On Drugs’ “Come to the City” 7-inch single is available this week on Secretly Canadian. Listen to the b- side, “Don’t Fear The Ghost” – http://soundcloud.com/dojagsc/the-war-on-drugs-dont-fear-the.
