Medicine Boy


Medicine Boy, the spirit animal of Lucy Kruger & Andre Leo, is a 'Dream Noise' duo from Cape Town, South Africa.

Drawing influence from the stripped down grooves of John Lee Hooker, to the piercing fuzzed-out majesty of the Jesus & Mary Chain, to the soothing Psychedelia of Mazzy Star, the pair create a sound where the calm and chaotic dance on the fine line between good & evil.

Since their live debut in June 2014 supporting Brooklyn Desert Psych trio, Golden Animals, the band have toured the country flat, playing a variety of clubs, theaters and festivals along the way. In February 2015 they supported Californian Surf-Psych heavyweights, Allah-Las.

The duo have just released their first recorded material since their debut EP, 'More Knives', which dropped in September of last year. Download 'The Villain / Electric Sugar' over at their Bandcamp page – . The Villain is accompanied by a visual treat, courtesy of Barry De Villiers from Roundabout Films.

From May – August of this year, Medicine Boy will take their music overseas, with dates booked in Spain, France, Germany, Holland & England, playing alongside bands such as The Cosmonnauts (US), Younghusband (UK) & Hoboken Division (FR).
