New York City duo Sub Lights releases their indie-electronic psych-pop project out of the bedroom and onto the stage with their first album, Medicine on November 1, 2021. Medicine is available on a platform that the band supports, as well as all major digital streaming platforms including Spotify and Apple Music. The lead singles off the album, “I Wanna Start a Riot,” were inspired by the #metoo movement.
The band members, Stephen & Meredith Duncan, used the NYC lockdown as a way to channel their passion for social justice into music. As they both share songwriting, instrumental, and vocal duties, the album delves deep into the murky depths of the psyche and wrestles with issues that other artists often shy away from. “I Wanna Start a Riot” is a prime example: building on the hook–a product of one of Stephen’s nocturnal songwriting sessions–Meredith took the torch and finished out its fiery melody and lyrics, while the two collaborated in their studio on layered rhythms and synths. Medicine’s other tracks, like “No Alarm,” “The Bleeding Machine,” and “Sympathetic” similarly bloomed from core ideas (from the protest against political corruption to personal grief and a hopeful statement on solidarity) into full collaboration.
As Meredith says about the band’s process: “Our music acknowledges the beauty and grit of life. Living in New York has a way of making you feel connected and more aware of how unique yet the same we humans are. The random conversations in close spaces, the unexpected kindness of strangers, and the utter diversity of experience become fuel for our songwriting.” After a lot of experimentation, late nights, early mornings, deep meditation, and variously enhanced psychic explorations, Medicine has emerged as a “soundtrack for the psy-pocalypse.”
