Bang Bang Romeo – “Chemical” (video)

21 Jul

Having wowed us in the past with tracks like “Johannesburg” and “Carnival”, Bang Bang Romeo have just raised our love for them up another notch with the earth-shattering might of “Chemical”. First heard online over a year ago, the Yorkshire based foursome have finally released it as a single and given us some rather superb visuals accompaniment as well.

To say that it’s huge is something of an understatement. “Chemical” has such an intensity and so much power that it could rouse the dead. The expansion of the track, as the opening gives way to the explosion of guitar and rhythm and as Anastasia’s voice grows to its foundation-shaking best, is a literal goosebump moment. Every single time we hear it.

Their sound has always been darkly cinematic and now they have a video to match. Starring the incredible Ralph Ineson and Olivia Roach, it has a wonderfully grandiose feel that perfectly matches the song. In the majestic setting of Rossington Hall, our protagonist (Ineson) appears to go through a Scrooge-like epiphany thanks to the siren-esque visitation of hypnotic spirit (Roach).

They’ve explained that “Chemical” is “about not giving up on someone even when it feels like it’s almost over, not living with regrets and finding that feeling again that was there right at the beginning, it’s love that’s worth fighting for that can’t be explained as something that runs through your veins, it’s something bigger than that.”

With a sound as vast and immense as this, ‘bigger than that’ could be the band motto.

”Chemical” is out now and available to buy on iTunes
