SEND MEDICINE began as a solo project from Toronto based singer/songwriter Julian Hacquebard. Julian then moved to Los Angeles, and began shaping a sound that LA RECORD called “a heady mix of psych, blues, folk and surf - a winning combination.” Since, the band has expanded to a full line up, with a reputation for their deep-felt live performances featuring percussion, harmonies, and theremin.
SEND MEDICINE has been showcased on Indie FM’s Buzzbands, Pop Matters, Hype Machine, The Deli Mag, Live on KSPC, KCSN, KX93.5, KBeach Radio, and numerous other college and independent radio stations.
In 2016, the band released their debut album Scary Aquarius Daughter featuring lead single “July Eyes” and follow up “Baby’s Coast.” The band spent the summer of 2016 touring the pacific northwest and west coast in support of this album. In October 2016 the band released the psych-pop single “Translucent,” which was added to Spotify’s new New Indie Mix upon release. Spotify has also featured the band on playlists like Modern Psychedelia, Garage Jams, undercurrents, and Frescura Indie.
In addition to Hacquebard, SEND MEDICINE consists of Lauren Grimaldi, Ryan Glennan, Aaron Stern and Curran McDowell. The band will be heading to Austin for SXSW in the coming months, and will be releasing their sophomore album in 2017.
"Send Medicine crafts modern psychedelic pop with an eye and an ear to the past, effortlessly evoking more nostalgia in one three minute song than most bands can encapsulate in an entire album." - Earmilk
“Tribal percussion, whispery vocals, twangy guitar, and subtle electronics gel to give the tune an unorthodox pop sensibility.” - PopMatters
“From Toronto, Canada, to a Canyonside magic mushroom garden near you, behold the psychedelic panoply of Send Medicine.” - Buzzbands
“…trippy power pop track “Seaside” which features a wavy theremin, reverberated vocals, and a robust rhythm section” - PlayTooMuch
“Send Medicine weaves together psych, folk and surf in a combo that may appeal to Devendra Banhart, freak folk and perhaps even T Rex-era folk.” - Apes on Tapes
