Gateway Drugs: Slumber

The second single in a short while by LA rockers, Gateway Drugs, is another psych pop gem which raises the bar for the band's coming full length, PSA, expected out in May 2020 through Future Shock Records. The new track comes a little after the very sharp Wait (Medication) from last month, as both songs suggest a pretty solid return for the band.

Not unexpectedly, the easygoing, Slumber, prompts comparisons to The Brian Jonestown Massacre and the early Dandy Warhols, while thematically it tackles the idea of unreciprocated  and rejected love, effecting in a nice contrast between the music's blitheness and the dejection of its lyrical content.

The track is sung by the band's Gabe Niles, and like the rest of the coming album it was produced by Sune Rose Wagner of the Raveonettes, and recorded live at Josh Homme's Pink Duck Studios.

Slumber comes with a completely DIY homemade video directed and edited by the band members themselves.

Gateway Drugs are composed of siblings Liv, Noa and Gabe Niles, alongside their longtime friend, James Sanderson on bass guitar.
