Brooklyn new wave four-piece My Son The Doctor release their new EP Taste Those Dreams via Paper Moon Records next week, and to whet your appetite we’ve got an exclusive first listen of “Rubber Hands”, the third single to be taken from the record.
Romping along on a strident guitar and bass riff, “Rubber Hands” comes on like The Strokes enlisting Stephen Malkmus as songwriter, and there’s a surreal sense of humour that weaves its way throughout – it certainly ranks as my favourite track of the year to feature a list of herbs. Asked about the track, the band explain, “We liked the idea of making a song that felt like punks trying to play jazz. It’s a common complaint that people are statues at Brooklyn indie shows. We work hard to be both confrontational and inviting all at the same time. It’s an energy we really feed off and we tried to capture that in ‘Rubber Hands.’ The main goal of the song was just getting people moving.”
“Rubber Hands” is out now and is taken from the EP Taste Those Dreams, due out on Paper Moon Records on 8th October. Download the track via Bandcamp.
