This week’s Song of the Week is Chemistry by Berlin-based synth-pop venture The Ghost of Helags
Made in the night-time, for the night-time, ‘Chemistry’ was written after an eerie after-hours drive from Vienna to Prague earlier this year. Surrounded by a dense and ethereal fog, the unsettling journey felt reminiscent of a scene from a lost David Lynch film.
In a DIY new video for ‘Chemistry’, the band piece together a montage of surrealist imagery and intimate performance. Sound tracked by the propulsive electronica of the new single, the video finds the band paying homage to Lynchian works like Twin Peaks while referencing that inspirational late-night drive of their own.
