The new single "You and Drugs" was written after some really toxic, on again/off again, late night, hook up relationships. It is a commentary on our instant gratification culture where we all want that high of drugs but we all end up feeling empty or lost after it. So we wanted to ask the question "what's the difference between You and drugs?". They are basically the same. Relationships are drugs, our phones and social media are drugs etc. We want quick and easy. In the end the song hinges on that point in life where you are over the instant gratification and toxic experience with "drugs" and you want real love. You want something that lasts and fills you up. It is harder work and commitment but so much more rewarding.
