The track Cold Blooded,. A haunting opening gives way to hooky synths, pounding drum fill and heavy guitars with an ultra-catchy chorus in Young Medicine’s horror-inspired new single Cold Blooded. Out now on all platforms from the independent multi-genre label FiXT.
Cold Blooded. Is loosely based around the Haunting Of Bly Manor, Young Medicine describes the track as «a ghost story told from the ghost’s perspective. Waiting from beyond the grave for what you’ve lost».
«Cold Blooded is definitely more of a slow burn and build compared to some of our more recent singles, focusing more on telling a story than on crafting a conventional YM track». – Young Medicine
Rising synthwave rockers Young Medicine pull the best from diverse genres to build a carefully constructed music identity that defies simple categorization. Thumping double-bass beats and crunchy guitar riffs hammer out hard-hitting rhythms while chorus lines partner with sparkling retro synth tones for a stunning mix of audio ideas. If synthwave and metal got together and started a boy band, the result might sound something like Young Medicine, who have put themselves on the map as pioneers for a new era by bringing rockstar swagger to the retrowave movement.
Young Medicine made a statement early, releasing their debut album Interlinked in 2019 to widespread fan and influencer support, including the group being named in Alternative Press’s Top 12 Bands You Need To Know. The album also received prominent Billboard charting, landing spots on the Top 10 Alternative New Artist Albums and Top 25 New Artist Heatseekers charts. The band propelled themselves into tens of thousands of Spotify monthly listeners practically overnight while a series of original music videos piled up hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube.
The red-hot recording soon caught the attention of independent retro label FiXT Neon, who signed the group to a deal in early 2020. The new partnership led to a re-release of Interlinked along with brand new remixes, with new singles planned throughout 2021 and building towards a new full-length album in 2022.
