    The War on Drugs are the latest act to partake in the Spotify Singles series. As with past contributions, the band recorded a live take of one of their own tracks as well as a cover song at Spotify Studios NYC.

    For their own song, TWOD delivered “Holding On”, the lead single off their forthcoming A Deeper Understanding. The band’s choice of cover was Warren Zevon’s ballad “Accidentally Like a Martyr”. While remaining largely faithful to the original, TWOD’s unmistakably psychedelic take on heartland sounds amplifies the guitar bends throughout. Take a listen:
