Video: Social Studies – “Drifty”

This chilling number from Social Studies has a soft beginning that snowballs into a showcase of the whole band’s talents by the end.


Natalia Rogovin sets the mood with a light touch on keys to complement a smooth, opening bass line. Her searing vocals cut into your soul as harmonized guitars swing in with a powerful punch to lend even more weight to this emotional ride. At times, these guitars fade out, allowing Natalia to take center stage again and weave her musical story.
