Them Chemicals is a trio from Bruges that makes music which can be described as noiserock and poprock. People rave about the energy they show at gigs as most of their songs contain a lot of rhythmic transitions, a bit like Brutus or Pixies.

On their latest song BXL they do things in a different way. The typical transitions are replaced by keys and a more dominant bass. The vocals reminds us of Bloc Party, and the track has a genius atmosphere which fits perfect in their set.

Them Chemicals released a beautiful track that definitely is different from the rest, and another proof that it’s a band to keep an eye on!

Them Chemicals is een trio uit Brugge en maakt muziek die zich ergens tussen noiserock en poprock bevindt. Live stralen ze veel energie uit. Hun vorige songs bevatten nogal wat ritmische overgangen, een beetje zoals dat bij Brutus of Pixies het geval is.

In hun meest recente song BXL gaat het er echter anders aan toe: de keyboards en de bas krijgen volop ruimte met vocals die wat aan Bloc Party doen denken. Onverwachte ritmesprongen laat men achterwege en dat is ideaal voor de sfeer. Die overgangen passen meer bij hun ruigere songs.

Them Chemicals levert met BXL een mooie song af die wel anders klinkt, maar toch bij de rest van hun oeuvre past. Een band om te onthouden.

There are two contradicting aspects of individualism: the promise that you can achieve anything and the blaming of the individual for not achieving it.

I broke away from the pressure you have as an artist to appeal to a certain type of audience, to create dance floor hits.
