Five piece Hamilton, Ontario band The Medicine Hat springs powerfully onto my radar with their latest song St. Cecilia. Lead singer Nabi Sue Bersche’s ravishing vocals shine brilliantly from within St. Cecilia’s lavish sea of tempestuous guitar and pensive synths, her voice a blistering inferno both emotive raw and breathtaking pure. Electronic pop and alt rock make seamless partners on The Medicine Hat’s single, melding together like early Metric on some The Joy Formidable with a sprinkling of new indie buzz band DYAN. Nabi Sue Bersche explains that the song is for all the men who ever harassed her. St. Cecilia, the patron saint of music, is her constant companion, watching her back. Well, The Medicine Hat is obviously our new saints of music, and they’re more than welcome to keep us company through some dark times. Watch their official video for St. Cecilia below.
