Brighton, UK Punks Harker Release Raging Protest Anthem “Medicine”


“Coming in fierce with raucous, frantic punk energy their sound changes and shifts as the song progresses. Combining a noise that is raw with big riffs and exhilarating impact with dreamy, psychedelic waves, the trudge of Nirvana-esque grunge and the uplifting jangle of indie.”- Click Roll Boom

“Exceptional…. a colossal slab of ear-appealing noise.”- Thoughts Words Action

“With a sound that scratches all of the right MTV’s 120 Minutes, circa 1994, spots, Harker is a UK band after my own heart. The UK outfit reminded me of the same kind of angsty melodic vibe groups like Samiam, Gameface, and Superchunk gave off, but there’s also a nuanced dissonance to a lot of their material. Basically, Creation Records would have probably been into them back in the day.”- No Echo

“…harkens back to the glory days of ’90s fuzzed-out guitar rock, with a bit of ’70s proto-punk thrown in as well.”- Consequence of Sound

The band says the track is inspired by, “the current state of the UKs post lockdown climate, ‘Medicine’ is a furious protest anthem pushing back against politicians cashing out on the misery of working class people and capturing the anger of a country currently rifting through a class struggle.”
