Music review: The 1975's Medicine

Team Manila Concert Junkies
The 1975 just unveiled their latest track “Medicine”. The said single was specially written for Zane Lowe rescoring the Ryan Gosling film “Drive” which was aired last October 30, 2014 on BBC.

According to Matt Healy, the lead singer of The 1975, “Having the opportunity to rescore a movie of which we were already so familiar with provided us with a sense of knowing and allowed us to be slightly more introspective than we maybe would have been approaching something unknown”.

I bet everyone here already heard “Medicine” and fans have absolutely loved it for sure. The music is just cool, very relaxing to listen. It has long instrumental which made the song chilled and soothing.  I really love the first line of the lyrics “I find it hard to say bye-bye” and at the chorus part “In case you’re my medicine, yeah, you’re my medicine”.

“The song is a testament to that same idea and has in turn become one of our most personal and best loved pieces of music to date”. – Matt Healy.

"I won't delve into what the song is about lyrically because frankly I want to put those ideas to bed; but being provided with the context in which Medicine came to be, it allowed the song to become a mausoleum for those ideas, captured, diverted and frozen forever. Which is pretty cool."

The “Medicine” was made and written by the band in the scenes they chose to score. Having their signature picky guitars, the sexiness of Matty’s voice, made the song sugary to our ears.

The rescore also include collection of exclusive new tracks by Banks, Baauer, Jon Hopkins, SBTRKT, Bastille, Bring Me The Horizon, CHVRCHES, Eric Prydz, Foals, Laura Mvula and The Neighbourhood.
