Yesterday Tom and Ben of Philadelphia-based duo Work Drugs sent over their debut album Tropic of Cancer/ Tropic of Capricorn which they’ve been putting together in preparation for their April tour with Two Door Cinema Club. When the Irishmen first approached them a few months ago, Work Drugs only had a handful of songs to their name, but now, with the release of their first album, they have a plump bag of jams from which they’ll surely draw at their upcoming shows. If you live near Philly make sure to check out their first ever show on April 2nd.
When I first heard ‘Third Wave’ four months ago I could never have imagined it played live, but with the new album they’ve offered people like me, who don’t live near one of their April dates, two live, acoustic renditions of ‘Third Wave’ and ‘Rad Racer’. The album will be released in two versions or “smooth-Ps” and only 50 of each will be made. The Tropic of Cancer disc features the Third Wave “Cayman Islands Session” and Tropic of Capricorn features the ‘Rad Racer’ session. You can check out the tracklist and buy the album, which drops April 1st, here.

Today, they released the newest single off the album, the immensely smooth ‘Curious Serge’.
