HCK9 to release unique alt-rock single ‘medicine’
James Brown is the mastermind behind HCK9 (Half Cut K9), an electronic alt-rock project. With lots of musical experience under his belt, HCK9's unique and signature sound is a mixture of genres and musical ideas he loved growing up. Twenty One Pilots, Placebo and Jimmy Eat World can all be found in his music, creating a colourful melting pot whilst he also retains his own stamp on his music.
His latest single 'medicine' is an example of this sound. Drums smash through the mix, reverbarating energy around the track. On top, overdrive soaked guitars work hand in glove with infectious vocals. Electronic elements ebb and flow in between the track, creating a different dimension.
Speaking further about the release, he says: “(I’m not your) Medicine” some might say is a little too metaphorical to say in an argument but the sentiment however, rings true.
Whether it may be a parent, toxic ex or a friend who just can’t get the hint, 9/10 people will have gone through a situation where they are pushed past the human ability to shoulder the weight of someone’s crumbling life. If this hasn’t happened to you, I hate to say it but you may want to seek out a therapist.Medicine is all about drawing a line in the sand between my need to save everyone and the people who can’t be or don’t want to be saved. It’s the battle against a hero complex sown into my very being and the inability to say what needs to be said.This is a goodbye letter to the self destructive people who refuse to take responsibility for their own life, and make it everyone else’s problem.”
With more work in the pipeline, we can’t wait to hear what he’s got next in store after this. It’s clear that HCK9 is on a journey, and we can’t wait to see where he’ll take it.
