Independent electronic music act ASHRR is giving audiences their first preview of its forthcoming debut EP.
The group — Steven Davis (vocals), Josh Charles and Ethan Allen — debuted the EP’s lead single, ‘Medicine Man’ this past February. Its debut was followed up with the premiere of the song’s companion video on May 8 via New Noise magazine. The song’s musical arrangement has led it to be likened to works from Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode and David Bowie (from his Nine Inch Nails influenced days). That is clear in the brooding keyboard arrangement and Davis’ equally brooding vocal delivery.
Lyrically, the song is rather cryptic, with the song’s subject seemingly singing about being all that another wants. He sings, “If you want a revelation to wake your soul/If you want a demonstration, just let me know/Hey, hey, lay your worry down. Whatever you crave, I’ve got lying around/I’ve got your cure/I’m your everything man/I’m your medicine man, I’m your medicine man/Hey, hey what you waiting on/Just gotta call on me and it won’t be long/I’m your everything man, I’m your medicine man.” To this it, the song comes across as a rather dark work. Now in what fashion this is intended to be interpreted is left to that interpretation, as no explanation behind the lyrics has been offered.
