Quarry – Chemical
Quarry has released a single all about letting go. “Chemical is ultimately about letting go of things we can’t control – like the chemicals that shape us, racing through our bodies and colouring everything we see,” Quarry explains. “We don’t get to choose how they make us feel, it’s just a reaction … It’s frustrating to not be in control of how we feel, but at the same time, there’s something beautiful and inevitable about letting go.” Pulling from a vast array of inspirations – anything from LA Priest to Spice Girls to Jimi Hendrix – the product is a pop-infused firework of hisses, squeals, and synths. Bursting into familiar technicolour, his most recent cut, Chemical, takes this sonic approach and applies it to the very messaging of the song itself.
