The War on Drugs - Lost in the Dream (2014, Secretly Canadian)
First listened: 2014
The state of being lost is one synonymous with feelings of desperation, confusion, and often agony. A complete abandonment or loss of some path resulting in a complete lack of understanding of where to turn next, literally or figuratively, is a scary and, for many of us, relatable thought to have.

The War on Drugs, an indie rock quartet based in Philadelphia, sought to combine these two completely separate arenas of thought and emotion into a functional entity with their latest release, Lost in the Dream.
