Good day to you ladies and gentlemen, it has been a while since my last post, I’ve been dealing with a severe case of creative block in recent times. But today I just had to remerge to share my thoughts on the latest song from SG Lewis; “Chemicals“.
Now I love SG Lewis, I’ve been following his music since I heard his single “All Night” back in April 2016, and since then I’ve listened to everything he’s released and had the pleasure of seeing him live twice. Needless to say, I am a massive fan and I’m always looking forward to when he drops some new music. So imagine my surprise a week ago when he said on social media he’d drop new music today. I got hyped as hell. Anyways enough of that, let’s talk about “Chemicals“.
Here’s the song:
Ah, “Chemicals” man that’s some good stuff! I knew in the opening seconds of the sound that I was down for it. It’s upbeat and groovy straight from the start and while it’s different from the material he’s realised before, he still has that undeniably fun and wonderful sound that makes Lewis’ music so good.
So “Chemicals” feels a little swifter, upbeat and groovier than what Lewis’ previous material and that’s not a bad thing, quite the opposite. I’ve found that Lewis’ music has always had a great balance between being something you can relax and dance to, but this song is definitely more for dancing to. It starts like the Kool-Aid Man busting through a wall saying “Oh yeah! Time to dance!” And I love it. Two of my all-time favourite songs from Lewis has been “Aura” and “Hurting”, both have a gorgeous sound that’s made for dancing especially the former. And this song follows suit with a sound that needs to be heard in the club or performed live. I love the vocals, catchy chorus and certain elements of the instrumental remind me vibes to Justice and Daft Punk, but mixed in with that awesome and sound that Lewis has crafted over the years.
All I can say is that this song could not have come at a better time, this lockdown situation due to the virus has got a lot of people feeling a little low, frustrated or lost. And so when music like this comes along, the kind that is so fun and energetic, it really helps elevate your mood and keep that fire of positivity alive. I know I’ll be jamming to this for a while to come and can’t wait to hear what Lewis has coming up in the future.
So to conclude I think “Chemicals” is another awesome song from SG Lewis, its got such a lively and groovy vibe that makes me smile and want to dance and I can’t recommend it enough! So have you heard this new song and if so what did you think of it? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below and I’ll see you with more content soon, laters! 😀
