With a lengthy European tour kicking off this week, Medicine Boy are sharing a new music video for ‘Bottom Of The Blue’

Having just released their incredible second album, Lower, Berlin duo Medicine Boy are getting ready to tour the album across the UK and mainland Europe, including a stop at London’s The Waiting Room. With the tour kicking off this weekend, the band have unveliled a new video for ‘Bottom Of The Blue’, taken from the recently released LP. Opening with a gloomy, humdrum piano arrangement and Lucy’s soft smoky vocals, the track is probably the best example of the two sides to Medicine Boy. Through the first couple of minutes, the eerie keys and haunting vocal cast a dark, shadowy cloud over the listener and then just as you feel comfortable the track erupts into a crushing blast of fuzzed-out guitars.

Talking about the track and video, the band explain: “It is difficult to say exactly what The Bottom of The Blue is about. It wasn’t written with a clear theme or concept in mind. It was one of those songs that became a strange sort of conversation between the two of us. And I suppose in some ways it deals with the temptation and the pitfalls of trying to pin something down. We allowed Nirma (the filmmaker) the creative freedom to respond to it intuitively and feel as if she has allowed the listener/viewer the space to do the same. The video was filmed in and around the icy Cape Town ocean – something that appears all over the album.”

Lower is out now on vinyl and digital. You can pre-order the LP and find the tour dates below…
