The Medics – ‘Sinking Ship’
The Medics – ‘Amongst The Corn Field’
I have no end of good things to say about Cairns band The Medics (I posted about them last year too), so I’ll keep this brief and try to gush as little as possible.
The Medics have spent the last nine months touring the country, playing shows and festivals and getting good at playing live. I mean, really good.
After a fantastic showcase at Brisbane’s BigSound conference in October (sucked in to all of you who were too busy talking over Washington’s set and demolishing Dew Process’ bar tab to see them), Leanne DeSouza came out of semi-retirement to manage them. Her previous clients include George and Kate Miller-Heidke, so the boys are in good hands.
Their new EP This Boat We Call Love was produced by Mark Myers from The Middle East and is a contender for my favourite album artwork of the year. It’s folkier than their previous effort but definitely more cohesive.
They’re playing shows in Brisbane, Toowoomba and the Gold Coast this weekend, starting with a gig at Club 299 tonight. Go and see them.
