The Vamps, ‘Chemicals’ – Single Review

The Vamps arrive with the goods quickly after their previous track ‘Married In Vegas’ from their upcoming album ‘Cherry Blossom’ spread like wildfire.

Furthermore, the four-piece pop outfit, smash it yet again with this new delivery, ‘Chemicals’. It starts with an unorthodox intro which contains a playground sound with distant noises popping in the background of the mix. From the opening, the lads hit with powerful vocals. Sharper than a vipers tooth, the megastars pick up the pace, and their energy flows from their performance.

Structure

Cleverly, this track takes them on a new direction with it sounding very dissimilar to ‘Married In Vegas’. It follows a structure which we do not hear all to often in pop, and they have stepped well away from the status quo with an arrangement which you will struggle to find elsewhere. The beat thumps hard but does not stick to what we know from the group. It comes, and it goes, often jumping out like a jack in a box before rapidly disappearing.

The chorus is anthemic and as you would expect from, The Vamps, it is contagious. Moreover, the melody grips deep, and it is impossible to not sway to their infectious rhythm. As the track progresses, the band push further into their newfound space. They stand out with charisma, and their beguiling quality would get even the sternest of listeners gravitating towards them.

For me, this track is the perfect release ahead of their new album. It is exciting, and it proves the group have matured into an unstoppable pop group. Not only does it bite, but it leaves a long-lasting impression which any pop fan will relish.
