Berlin duo Medicine Boy are gearing up for the release of their highly-anticipated second album Lower on October 5th, due for release via London-based label Fuzz Club. To announce the release the band are sharing the first official single from the album, “Bottom Of The Blue“.
Talking about the track, they explain: “The song is about the tipping point between desire and destruction. The danger and necessity of pursuing the muse, of falling in love, of holding on too tightly. The impossibility of holding on forever. The ability to find beauty in something that is broken.”
Listen below to Medicine Boy’s melancholic and sublime new single “Bottom Of The Blue”.
Originally hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, André Leo and Lucy Kruger founded the project back in 2014, self-releasing their debut EP to international appraise. By the time their debut full-length, Kinda Like Electricity, was released into the world their ever-growing fanbase had extended far beyond the confines of Africa, solidified further with two tours around Europe and the UK in 2015 and 2016.
Now residing in Berlin and with Fuzz Club signing, Lower marks a new chapter in Medicine Boy’s story. As the band themselves put it: “Lower is a myriad of introspection and interpretation. There are wider themes, stranger worlds and deeper wells than before. It is some kind of attempt to draw comfort (however twisted) and companionship (however tainted) from chaos and confusion. It’s our attempt to find beauty in the underworld.”
