The Medicine Dolls Share The Video For New Single ‘Danger! Danger! Disco!’

By / Off The Press / Friday, 18 September 2020 08:35

Cape Town-based, South African post-punk/garage rock cult The Medicine Dolls are a band that the world really needs right now, with untamed fury and a glammed-out fervour for excess, they are the ultimate in sonic chaos, wrapped tightly in streaked eyeliner and delicious danger. Today sees the release of their new single and video, Danger! Danger! Disco! taken from the bands highly anticipated debut full-length album Filth And Wisdom, releasing on the 2nd October via South Africa’s leading independent label Just Music.

Danger! Danger! Disco! is a love letter to the beautiful, destructive and emotionally charged nature of romance and misspent youth. A surf-punk twist contest for the twisted... play it loud!” – Greg Allan, vocals and guitar.

Watch the video for ‘Danger! Danger! Disco!’ below!

Formed in September 2016 by Greg Allan (guitar & vocals) and Bex Nicholas (bass). They take their primary influence from the sound of the gritty underground '70s (think The Velvet Underground meets The New York Dolls in the celebrated CBGB’s bathroom), with lashings of '80s indie music, post-punk, and a crucial injection of filthy surf rock to emerge as a chemical and exuberant fusion of The Cramps, The Doors, and The 5.6.7.8’s, with more than a healthy nod to The Birthday Party in all their infamous glory.

In the four years that they have been visiting the planet, they have released five EP's on their own steam and barely survived several extensive national tours, as well as featuring on numerous underground compilations and in publications from around the world.
