FAMILY AND FRIENDS’ ‘LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS’ WILL HAVE YOU ADDICTED TO HAPPINESS [STREAM]

There is no better name for this band than Family and Friends – an Athens, Georgia-based band, formed by 7 friends under the premise of “Good people. Good music.” Family and Friends’ honest drive—a “blend of earnest folk rock and a communal spirit pouring a collective heart into something bigger than itself”–yields songs saturated with love and synergy. “Love and Other Drugs” epitomizes this sensation. The song takes off immediately as the percussion (two drummers!) sets the energizing pace of the song. The guitar starts up with a happy little riff, and the viola playfully follows suit. If that weren’t enough, the opening lyrics of the song are, “Say hello to the moon / Say hello to the sun / I’m in love with this feeling / This feeling of love.” How can you not love how much joy these friends have? And when it converges in such a simply straightforward way, you can’t help but dance your heart out yourself.
