MEDICINE CABINET bring the summer vibes on their fun new single ‘Factor 50!’.
The Glasgow-based outfit shared their debut single ‘The Signs’ back in May, an upbeat and infectious track that sat somewhere between the glittering yet grungy worlds of No Doubt, Blondie, B52s and Grimes. Since then, they’ve played stand-out shows at The Great Escape, TRNSMT and have this week supported Remi Wolf in Dublin. They also have the small matter of a support tour with Franz Ferdinand later in the year.
Ahead of that though, they’ve unveiled their second single ‘Factor 50!’. Channelling No Doubt and 80s synth pop outfits, it’s a song brimming with charisma and infectious energy.
Anna Acquroff states:“This is the hyper-fantasy of an agitated beach babe, who’s experience of sunburn and heatstroke serves as an analogy for trust. When we wrote the song, I pictured her like a mix between Sharpay Evans (everyone’s favourite anti-hero) and Paris Hilton when she covered ‘Do Ya Think I’m Sexy’. But angrier.
“It’s an anthem for whether someone will have your back (covered in suncream properly) or if they’ll watch while you suffer. It explores suspicion and hope, served with ice and topped with a paper parasol. It will wink at you from behind scratched silver sunglasses, and then burst into flames.”
