MEDIC’s haunting new single ‘Smoke’

MEDIC are a Colorado founded, Nashville based pop band who began life in 2011. Their debut album, Olympia dropped in 2016 and that saw them support indie pop giants such as Miike Snow, The Fray and new hitmaker HalfNoise. New single ‘Smoke’ is their first single since their second relocation to Denver. The song is an emotionally wrought tale of love gone by. The song is new chapter of the band’s career as they branch out from their usual methods of production and writing.

‘Smoke’ features a minimalist backing track that expands into this giant, glistening cinematic masterpiece. Simple features like the pounding of drums create a somber undertone that builds tension in the song until it reaches the bridge where it gets resolved. Aaron Wagner’s vocals are stunning, they have an incredible depth of emotion.
