Back with their first new music since the release of 2019’s ‘No Geography’, The Chemical Brothers are sharing brand new track ‘The Darkness That You Fear’.

“’The Darkness That You Fear’ is a hopeful piece of music,” Tom Rowlands explains. “When we found the combination of the different voices worked set to the flow of the music it made us feel optimistic, like it was something we wanted to share.”

Accompanied by a video created by Bristol-based director Ruffmercy, Ruffmercy adds, “When I first heard the song I immediately connected with the theme and the overall positive vibe. New government rules for relaxing lockdown had been announced and combined with the sun shining, it left me feeling positive about the forthcoming summer. It also triggered a strong sense of nostalgia that led to me going back to look for visual inspiration from the period in time when I first discovered The Chemical Brothers in the mid ’90’s. The video combines archive rave footage from the mid to late 90’s with hand painted Super 8 film textures and hand drawn animation. I love using colour to create chaos and evoke emotions and this was the perfect project to do that.”
