“DRUGS is a song about how attached we are to our devices. Our faces lost in phone screens, using apps, obsessing over social media, yearning for likes, followers, favorites, retweets, swipes, alerts, and consumed by the constant feeds of up to the second information. Often we get hooked and lose track of life in the moment, and of the natural world. It is the addiction of our generation.” Nick Wold, DREAMERS.
Ironically, Ted Gowans’ rework on DRUGS, gives the song a crispy new layer that taps into a mellower mood. Gowans plays with the upbeat alternative rock instrumentals and twists it into something new with a heavy dose of reverb and guitar flair.
