PARACHUTER – “Chemistry”


“Chemistry” is a memorable electro-pop track released today from PARACHUTER, the bedroom pop project of singer/songwriter Wesley Jensen. Suave verses play well to start, exuding a vibe reminiscent of Hot Chip. A brightly effective synth addition just prior to the one-minute mark coincides with more vibrant vocals, resulting in a brief though effective hook, which enjoyably repeats throughout. The buzzing guitar addition at 02:30 also adds a warming, psych-friendly presence, which plays wonderfully. “Chemistry” is a catchy success from PARACHUTER.

““Chemistry” is a song that was inspired by some of my favorite artists like the Talking Heads and David Bowie,” Jensen says. “I’ve always loved what they were able to create with just a great groove at the base that can’t help but get you moving. With that as a starting point, I let the lyrics follow in that vein, writing about how good it feels to just cut loose and move your body, and even more specifically, being able to share that feeling with another person. There’s something powerful and exciting that really makes you feel alive and connect in that moment.”

“Chemistry” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2019’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Catchy Electro and Synth-Pop.
