Bio

“The Medics weave their way through rock songs with a melodic pop heart. They seem like a band to believe in.” Andrew McMillen on The Vine Whether it’s on stage or on record, The Medics are truly something to behold. An exhilarating blur of passion and movement, the band bring an all-too-rare sense of urgency to their music that’s underpinned their emergence as one of the country’s most genuinely exciting new bands. Since their earliest days in postcard paradise of Cairns, the band has followed its own path, defying convention and reveling in the unpredictable. Their debut This Boat We Call Love EP of 2010 is a slice of indie-rock magic that launched them into the spotlight – earning national airplay and kicking off a touring schedule that has seen them cross the country and turn in highlight sets at the Dreaming, Woodford, Peats Ridge, BIGSOUND Live, and Groovin’ the Moo festivals. And now the band is set to take that almost mythical ‘next step’ with their debut album to be released in the coming months. While The Medics will tell you they are still exploring exactly what their ‘sound’ is, this is an album brimming with confidence and, like the band itself, one with honesty and integrity at is heart.

A slight Temper Trap vibe to this song I reckon - via the floating guitars and voice. It's a slow burner for sure.

It's hard to follow up Beggars but Joseph does a very admirable job. Tense, grunting guitars meet up with that soft vocal coo that bursts into something much more, well, EPIC. Great great great.

The stinging guitars and rhythm section have some real guts, always dig on that speak-style singing. Suitably angsty and delivered with conviction.
