Produced by Aaron Anktum at Ariel Studios, ‘Chemicals’ by Whosah is another slice of bold and refreshing indie-pop.
Speaking to the motivation behind Chemicals, lead singer Spencer Grimes shares,
“Chemicals is about trying to understand each other. It explores the mystery about how our mental wellness is an emotional and spiritual experience, while simultaneously being a physical and scientific one. Chemicals digs into the uncomfortable space between how our thoughts can be both explainable and unexplainable at the same time and pushes us to draw together in the midst of that loneliness and find our shared humanity, our “beautiful soul” “Call it science or magic, I need to know your heart, and be whatever it is.”
