Hong Kong power-pop-punk band Strange Lives has released a music video for the track entitled ‘Only Chemical’ reliving the 80s.
“Only Chemical” pays homage to Strange Lives’ 80s heroes and heroines, as well as those who brought it back. With a hook that will never leave your mind, retro synthesizers, and a crisp production style, this synth-pop influenced new-wave track will knock you off your feet and onto the dance floor.
We’ve been writing about this band since they formed back in 2018 as a bunch of wide-eyed teenagers – click HERE. Back then we were already stoked at how unabashedly un-Hong Kong they were. Typically, Hong Kong bands don’t release music until years after their formation (literally, we know bands who’ve been around for 5 years and only after 5 years after forming release their DEBUT single), however, Strange Lives had already dropped a full EP mere months after forming. To see the band 3 years later continue to not only still be active, but continue to release killer music is an awesome feeling for a website like ours that prides itself on giving brand new bands a shot. This brand new music video is actually for a track off the band’s latest EP ‘Today’s No Different’ released last year.
Go support the band!
