Edinburgh indie rock band wrest return with their new single Medicine, out Friday 27th August 2021.
Fresh from the much-delayed UK tour in support of acclaimed 2019 debut album Coward of Us All, Medicine is the second new single to come from the band in 2021.
Blistering riﬀs soar over pain-drenched lyrics, carved with relatable sentiments on relationships, mental health and finding happiness. Raw with emotion and painfully honest, Medicine showcases the band at its most vulnerable best.
With sold out shows in Leeds, Brighton, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow on the UK tour, and sold out shows in Germany to come later in the year, the single emerges at a time of ascendency for one of Scotland’s most exciting new bands.
