ToyQueens – ChemicalBlood
ToyQueens describes his music as “alternative indie-emo with glittery pop and a melancholy dream-core aesthetic” and that’s just the beginning.
His new track ‘ChemicalBlood’ is certainly all of those things but with an indefinable quality that’s purely addictive. An anthem at its core, futuristic electronic sounds meet emo-era toplines that you simply won’t be able to get enough of.
