We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of A Drug Called Tradition’s new song “Goin’ Down Alone This Time” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Medicine Music, which is scheduled to be released on July 28th.
The band commented on the song: “I had this chord progression that I liked and wanted to make a song out of it. Once presented to the band I knew I wanted to keep it laid back and slightly menacing.”
The new single is a slow-burning, psychedelic tromp laced with sparse guitars & druggy, mumble-crooned vocals that build to a hazy, effect-heavy outro showcasing the band’s trademark shoegazey sound.
Medicine Music deftly fuses shoegaze, krautrock, and psych-rock influences with the heavy atmosphere of ADCT’s Southern roots. The result is raw and psychedelic – a wash of reverb-soaked guitars, phased-out bliss, rugged vocals, and punishing production that simultaneously recalls the noisy experimentation of Slowdive & the jagged post-punk of Television.
