As catchy as Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” is, most people cannot but cringe a bit when they hear the inescapable tune on the radio for the third time in one hour. Even here at Cover Me, we have heard everyone from Patti Smith to Linkin Park put their own spin on it. Fortunately, Philadelphia’s Work Drugs blend the Top 40 juggernaut into their self-described “smooth-fi” sound, making it nearly unrecognizable.

Work Drugs, who just finished a tour supporting Two Door Cinema Club, describe their music as something “specifically for dancing, boating, yachting, sexting, and living.” With its presumably laptop core, this Adele cover may not leave you breathless, but it does induce some noncommittal head-bobbing and makes for some nice chill-out music.
