The War on Drugs are on a bit of a victory lap following the release of last year’s acclaimed Lost in the Dream album, with some of the biggest concerts of their still-growing career scheduled for the next few weeks, including their slot at Coachella where it is being rumored they will play the coveted sunset slot on the main stage.
And, while the band has yet to breakthrough on some mainstream levels, they just received a pretty huge endorsement from David Cameron, British Prime Minister.
In an interview with Attitude (via NME), Cameron noted, “[My wife] Samantha got me listening to a new thing called The War On Drugs. I can recommend it. They’re a band. You can find them on Spotify or iTunes. Anyway, they’re good!”
And, if you are keeping track at home, that was actually a triple endorsement, with iTunes and Spotify also getting shout-outs. Good to know that Cameron is taking advantage of both music buying and streaming options.
