While not explicitly about the X-Files per se, Young Medicine’s heavy-hitting “UFO Party” draws heavily from the acclaimed series. Pivoting to the electronic rock side, “UFO Party” is a driving single featuring a turbulent array of synthesizers, drums, and heavy guitars, wrapped seamlessly around thought-provoking lyrics. 

“‘UFO Party‘ is a self-reflection on being a shut-in and of feeling stagnant. Driving through the areas you used to know growing up that have all changed, the people having moved on or away while you feel stuck doing the same thing,” states Young Medicine. “All set to the backdrop of watching X-Files for the thirtieth time while doom scrolling on the phone.

“UFO Party” is available now on all platforms from independent multi-genre label FiXT.

Rising synthwave rockers Young Medicine pull the best from diverse genres to build a carefully constructed music identity that defies simple categorization. Thumping double-bass beats and crunchy guitar riffs hammer out hard-hitting rhythms while chorus lines partner with sparkling retro synth tones for a stunning mix of audio ideas. If synthwave and metal got together and started a boy band, the result might sound something like Young Medicine, who have put themselves on the map as pioneers for a new era by bringing rockstar swagger to the retrowave movement. 

Young Medicine made a statement early, releasing their debut album Interlinked in 2019 to widespread fan and influencer support, including the group being named in Alternative Press’s Top 12 Bands You Need To Know. The album also received prominent Billboard charting, landing spots on the Top 10 Alternative New Artist Albums and Top 25 New Artist Heatseekers charts. The band propelled themselves into tens of thousands of Spotify monthly listeners practically overnight while a series of original music videos piled up hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube. 

The recording soon caught the attention of independent label FiXT, who signed the group to a deal in early 2020. The new partnership led to a re-release of Interlinked along with brand new remixes, with new singles planned throughout 2021 and building towards a new full-length album in 2022.
