MMThe band: Glasgow four piece Medicine Men are still riding high from their T in the Park performance on the T Break stage in July. Their new single comes out via This Feeling Records later this month. Creating a modern psychedelic sound with a dance floor groove, the band have been inspired by the likes of LCD Soundsystem’s film ‘Shut Up and Play the Hits’: the way the band view live performance, an inspiration to Medicine Men.

The sound: This groove-ridden track is a mix of ballsy guitar riffs, strong synths and melodic hooks. Their original fusion of psychedelic rock and electronic elements was ignited from the likes of Tame Impala’s Lonerism LP. Speaking to Tenement TV, front man Ian Mackinnon said of the track: “I actually woke up one night with the melody and words in my head. It’s never happened before or since. It’s like it wrote itself. I sang it in to my phone and then forgot about it for a few weeks. Luckily I found it again when trying to delete stuff. I had a lot of fun in the studio messing about with all the synths. It’s like Gary Numan being interrupted by Keith Richards.”

The video: Mackinnon commented of the video: “The video is all down to Árpád. All we did was give him the track. He came and filmed us at a gig and merged it with some other footage he had. I love what he’s done with it. Fits the track perfectly.”

The lowdown: Medicine Men will play Tenement Trail festival on 4th October 2014. Tickets are on sale now and available here. They will be joined by acts including Model Aeroplanes, Hector Bizerk, Tijuana Bibles, Atom Tree, Neon Waltz and many more playing across five venues.
