“Meds” is a morning-time  wake-up call, gently easing you into your day. Composed and performed by the two-piece NYC band Phone Home, the song is an amalgamation, a gentle mash of comforting synths and driving force jazz-influenced percussion. In the confusing haze of “chillwave,” this song stands out for its defiance of that. With simple grace, the song stays away from a cutesy 80s sound, and the piano’s affect is not totally unlike that of The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony.”
