Scottish dark pop duo LOVE SICK re-tells the story of Medusa (the myth character with snake hair) in modern era in their new single “Medusa.” The track gives you another perspective on the character who is unfairly labeled as the villain in many myths. But the duo gives us another view of Medusa from a victim’s position – stream below:

“The song came about after Julie had been reading about the Greek mythological story of Medusa – the goddess cursed to become a monster with hair made of snakes who could turn people to stone for just looking at her. Medusa was essentially an unfortunate cursed victim of circumstance. We became obsessed with her story and wanted to re-imagine it in a modern context – determination against all odds and remaining positive even if life isn’t going the way you planned.” shared the duo.

“Medusa” is from the duo’s upcoming EP No Sleep, which will be out on November 16th via B3sci Records. They’ll be playing shows at the end of November, so go see them – you won’t turn into stone:

11/27 – Poetry Club (Glasgow, Scotland)

11/29 – Bermondsey Social Club (London, UK)
