Relix Magazine premieres new song “Garden” from Nahko And Medicine For The People

Relix Magazine premieres the new Nahko And Medicine For The People lyric video for “Garden.” The track debuts January 24, 2020 on all platforms.

“I don’t come from a big hippie background,” the group’s frontman explained in a recent Relix feature, “But, as I’ve learned over the years, what I’m really doing is energy work. People’s energy is malleable and you can work with them to do so much.” As Relix Magazine then reported, “Nahko Bear is referencing his performance ethos, but this statement could apply to almost every facet of his life, which seamlessly blends music and activism.” This approach also informs, the group’s forthcoming album, Take Your Power Back.

NAHKO AND MEDICINE FOR THE PEOPLE
NEW SINGLE “LIFEGUARD” OUT NOW

https://smarturl.it/NAMFTPLifeguard

Nahko is currently performing “Lifeguard” on the road as
part of the “Take Your Power Back” Headline Tour

“I wrote this song nearly ten years ago after I almost drowned in the ocean,” Nahko explains. “Perhaps I should say, it felt like I was about to drown. I was stuck on top of a reef, thrown out of my kayak, had zero energy left, life flashing before my eyes in a huge swell, and then my ninja girlfriend came paddling after me and tossed me a line. In life and in a capitalistic society where we are taught to consume beyond our realistic needs, it takes a strong-willed person to see through the nonsense and keep your head above water. The altruistic motto ‘give what you can, take what you need’ rings true in the sentiment here. What if more of us held ourselves responsible for unlearning colonialism and took capitalisms bullying more personal? That’s what ‘Lifeguard’ is for me, a reflection of oneself within the chaos. As I evolve, so does my sound and with this first single we debut a mature production and a timely message for the world.”
