“The Days Of Adderall” (Prefix Premiere)

    Washington, D.C.’s Deleted Scenes aren’t exactly easy to narrow down genre-wise. Their critically lauded sophomore album, Young People’s Church of the Air, finds the four-piece roaming in and out of different styles, from surf rock to R&B to tropicalia to indie pop. That’s particularly true on the record’s highly addictive second single, “The Days of Adderall.”

    It moves away from the romantic, bedroom-eyes vibe of prior single “Bedbedbedbedbed” and looks right up at the sky. Sort of. “The Days of Adderall” is heavy on the aforementioned tropical vibes thanks to some shimmering steel drums, bubbly melodies, and beyond-infectious vocals from frontman Dan Scheuerman. Capping it all off are hazy instrumental swirls that accent the song’s sing-along chorus.
