Infectious, grunge-infused pop rock is tough the write, tough to get right. The Pale White make it sound and look like it were the easiest thing in the world.
‘Medicine’ is The Pale White’s breakthough track and it has had raucous support (helps being radio-friendly) – and it’s deserved. With more than a nod to early noughties indie rock, The Pale White thrash about somewhere between The Vines and Incubus, and they are immensely good fun live – maybe moreso than this recorded single itself.
Yes, get their records. But we implore you more – go and see them. They are one of those bands where the drums and the guitars need aaaaalllll of the extra room afforded in a room rather than crushed into a 256kb/s lossy stream.
