Medicine Boy, the spirit animal of Lucy Kruger & Andre Leo, is a ‘Dream Noise’ duo from Cape Town, South Africa.
Drawing influence from the stripped down grooves of John Lee Hooker, to the piercing fuzzed-out majesty of the Jesus & Mary Chain, to the soothing Psychedelia of Mazzy Star, the pair create a sound where the calm and chaotic dance on the fine line between good & evil.
Since their live debut in June 2014 supporting Brooklyn Desert Psych trio, Golden Animals, the band have toured the country flat, playing a variety of clubs, theaters and festivals along the way.
In February 2015 they supported Californian Surf-Psych heavyweights, Allah-Las.
The duo have just released their first recorded material since their debut EP, ‘More Knives’, which dropped in September of last year.
