Trophy Eyes have been on heavy rotation for me over the last six months. Their emo hardcore/pop punk album Chemical Miracle is a collection of impressive tracks centred around questions of life, death and everything in between. As an album, it’s hard and heavy when it needs to be, with moments of tenderness too.
The track “Chlorine” was for me an impressive introduction to the potency of Trophy Eyes’ music, not having heard any of the tracks of their previous album (Mend, Move On) beforehand. This band from Newcastle, Australia put a lot of heart into their music, despite seeming like they would be more likely to crush you in the pit.
“Chlorine” hits you right in the feels, but I’ll let the song and the music video below tell the story.
If you like “Chlorine”, do check out the rest of Chemical Miracle, released October 14th 2016 by Hopeless Records, as we’d consider this one to be our favourite album of 2016.
