It’s the latest track lifted from their forthcoming album, ‘North East Coastal Town’.

Ahead of the release of their third album ‘North East Coastal Town’ on 19th August, LIFE are sharing their latest single ‘The Drug’.

Speaking on the new single vocalist Mez Green says, “The Drug is a love song. I wrote the lyrics in the cold mountains of Italy before taking them into the room with the band. ‘The Drug I needed has always been here, the drug I needed has always been near’ is, for me, realising that loved ones and those that love you, no matter where you are, can always be present. I’d never really believed this before and whilst this purity is at the lyrical heart of the song musically the band decided to inject flecks of dance, pop, harmonics, and dirty pulses to give the song drive, repetition and jerk-ability.”
