The Pale White - 'Medicine'


The Pale White have administered an injection of heavy indie-rock with their new single ‘Medicine’.

This Newcastle-upon-Tyne trio have been working hard to build a reputation as one of the country’s highly regarded new bands, with ‘Medicine’ their first release since the excellent ‘Take Me to The Strange EP’ at the end of last year.

This heavy rock sound, as you can imagine, translates brilliantly into what is becoming an unmissable live set. Securing upcoming supports slots on Sam Fender’s European tour and for Foals at Newcastle’s This Is Tomorrow Festival, on top of a headline Northern tour which is in full swing.

The Pale White have recruited the help the engineering and producing expertise of Jolyon Thomas (Royal Blood) for ‘Medicine’, their similar sound bleeds through the speakers as heavier than usual guitar lines shake you to your core.  

Adam Hope, Jack Hope, and Thomas Booth have begun to garner comparisons to the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, which I’ve heard in Adam’s vocals throughout their back catalogue and especially on this track.

The heavy noise translates wells into the heavy meaning behind Medicine’s lyrics, speaking of being “in a rut” and the search to find the remedy that will pull you from the “mundane greyness” as Adam describes it.

‘Medicine’ is a great stepping stone towards what we hope will be an album, and further solidifying their status as the next big thing to come out of the North East.

‘Medicine’ is now available on all major streaming platforms, catch The Pale White on their Northern headline tour until March 9th.
