It’s Friday night, you’ve made it through the weekly 9-5 nonsense and you’re looking for anything that offers some form of sweet release. Suddenly someone heard through the grapevine about Designer Drugs and you and your closest partner in crime are off and running to GPS yourselves wherever they happen to be on that particular night, armed and ready for a little audio masochism.
The jet-setting duo that manage to change zipcodes more than undergarments are successfully able to drown out all the drama spawned from you Monday to Friday mundane, and they do it loud and proud. Most recently they’ve rocked Avalon and as fast as they conquered L.A. they were gone again to salvage another city from the norm.
Their latest release and carefully constructed single “Through The Prism” was not only a welcome change from the audio-norm, but the electro rock pop manages to pluck you from your expected state of mind and thrust you into a world a little more keen on having you expect the unexpected.
Best tracks to provide the perfect soundtrack for your willing fall down the rabbit whole are the self-proclaimed single “through the prism” and “drop down”- both of which conveniently fit the theme for any given Friday night.
Your mission this weekend? Find a sufficient location, set your select station to anything bumping Designer Drugs, turn it up, fade into the future. Be sure not to sound proof said select location, and pimp out the tunes and tracks to everyone of your friends and fellow music fiends. After all, sharing is caring.
