New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth the eccentric, bubble gum infused chaos that is “Ice Cream Man” by FOX MEDICINE. The tune bends a few genres together into a cohesive roller coaster. On that roller coaster the listener has a root beer float infused with the acid of fruits. It’s one hell of a tune that breaks through any and all barriers. The song is off of the upcoming record, PROCÉDURES MYSTIQUES, out on November 8th.
“A song about obsession, temptation and overthinking on a summer day.” – FOX MEDICINE
Fox Medicine is a two-piece band from Portland, OR. They specialize in a boutique sound called Bubblegum Doom – a noisy distortion cocktail inspired by founding forefathers such as Melvins, Sonic Youth and Throbbing Gristle.
Neezy has been tinkering with her songwriting and sound for years in various underground bands until one night she met Vanny Keeps (drums/vocals) at a show. The two bonded musically and started recording “fuzzy DIY demos” and playing shows in late 2016.
Just as the band was getting tighter, they ran into their dream producer Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Helmet, Tool, Big Business), while eating a burger at a North Portland venue. After 5 days in the studio together, Kasai claims that Fox Medicine is “the weirdest band” he’s ever worked with, and describes their sound as “Black Sabbath with J-Pop Vocals”. The result of the collaboration is an intriguing first studio album, definitive of the fictional genre.
