Simple Creatures – Drug

Both their bands being between albums, Mark Hoppus (blink-182) andย Alex Gaskarth (All Time Low) found some down-time to start a side-project: Simple Creatures. Their debut EP is due out in March and was produced by Zakk Cervini (blink-182 and All Time Low, but Yungblud and 5 Seconds Of Summer as well).

Drug is the duoโ€™s first single. After a short intro, it starts with a โ€˜Nananaโ€™ bit that couldโ€™ve been ripped off of Pinkโ€™s So What. The sound and attitude of that song are echoing throughout the whole of Drug. Lyrically, itโ€™s about being destroyed by the things you love.

Gaskarth:ย โ€œDrug is a song about someone or something you want the most, being terrible for youโ€ฆ Feels great until it doesnโ€™t, but then you canโ€™t stop. In the studio it felt immediately like it was the song that best defined Simple Creatures; itโ€™s gritty, grimy, rooted in the musicality we both came up on, but with a twist that takes it away from anything weโ€™ve worked on before.โ€
