Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs share new video for single, “Mr Medicine”

Newcastle’s Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs recently announced the release of their fourth album, Land Of Sleeper due out February 17th on Rocket Recordings.

Today they have shared the video for the first single “Mr Medicine” – made by the artist Wilm Danby, known for his paintings and video art for the likes of Palace, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Bullion. “When I first heard the track, I immediately felt a kind of forward motion, like being pushed forward by an unknown force in a nightmare, toward an unknown place, floating but with no control. Scary but fun…” says Danby. “On repeated listens, it became sort of a mantra with riffs, about transcending fear through some kind of ritual or rite of passage. I wanted to make that ritual happen, to see what it could look like, and if it would work. A stone circle was the obvious place for this, the moon is famously great at transforming things, and transformations are usually very painful!

Music is a powerful medicine and it should be consumed daily for mental wellbeing. Mr Medicine’s faithful and highly regarded colleague is Doctor Gig, who we also have on speed dial,” Matt Baty explains. “Lyrically I suppose the sentiment is not too dissimilar to Sister Sledge ‘Lost In Music’, only galvanised by heavy, heavy doses of distortion and really big drum fills.
