BIO & SOUND LINK
The Medicine Dolls are a post-punk/Garage-Rock band from Cape Town, South Africa, formed in September 2016 by Greg Allan (Guitar & Vocals) and Bex Nicholas (Bass). Drawing influence from the underground sound of 1970’s London and New York, while taking notes from 1980’s indie and post-punk, to create a unique sonic cocktail.
Since the band’s relatively recent formation, they have independently released four EP’s and completed five extensive national tours, the most recent of which, saw the band play 24 shows in 30 days, and took them to every corner of South Africa. More recently, they were asked to open for one of South Africa’s most influential alternative bands, Springbok Nude Girls, at The Hillcrest Quarry in Cape Town, been given the honor of being on the cover of the July issue of one of South Africa’s premier art and culture magazines “The Lake” and signed a digital distribution deal with the country’s most influential indie label, “Just Music” as well as their first international vinyl release with their single “A Good Chance of Bad Weather”
2019 will see The Medicine Dolls release their as yet untitled fifth EP, which is in production at the minute, as well as embarking on their first international tour dates.
