Glass Violet – Chemicals (Review)

Bristol based Glass Violet cite inspiration from bands such as The Killers and Kasabian. Receiving supports from the likes of BBC Radio Bristol and Amazing Radio, their debut single ‘Chemicals’ features a simple indie rock structure with a highly energetic atmosphere. Known for their exceptional live shows around the country, the unstoppable quintet have a whole set of material in the bag ready for the world to hear. Crafting together melodic songs that will play on repeat in your head, “Chemicals” is the track you didn’t know you needed until now.

Providing a huge production, “Chemicals” is filled with all the ingredients to make a juicy, indie banger. Featuring a sing-along chorus and dramatic verses, the chord progression sticks to the same four chords throughout. Proving that you don’t need all the chords in the world to write a track, the simplicity of the 4 chords is unique and a whole lot ‘human’. Imaginative debut single, if their back catalogue is anything like this one, we’re in for a treat. 

Score: 3/5
