Elements of I Prevail, Nothing More, While She Sleeps and modern Bring Me The Horizon come together to create an EP far more than the sum of its parts. Opener ‘War’ is an absolute lungburster of a track and at no point throughout the five-track salvo do JET FUEL CHEMISTRY let up.
An impressive collection of songs from such a young band, JET FUEL CHEMISTRY first came together three years ago. The entirety of the band’s EP was recorded, mixed, and mastered in guitarist / producer Danny’s bedroom, for a grand total of £0.
A scintillating mix of anthemic alternative rock and modern metalcore mark this new group as ones to truly take attention of.
The sounds of Dublin are fully embedded in Sign of the Times. As bassist Lorcan states:
“Dublin is a city notorious for phenomenal indie music and there’s a lot of positives to that, but what’s overlooked by that movement is the misery endured by Dublin’s young people for the last decade as more and more of their lives and identities shift to social media.
We love the music coming out of our city but most of it does not capture the spirit of dread and aimlessness that’s become the norm here. We want our songs to not only acknowledge these issues, but to give a two fingered salute to the enablers of our collective unhappiness and offer a source of strength to anybody feeling as lost as we do.
Such a thoughtful, considered approach is typical of JET FUEL CHEMISTRY and a true acknowledgement of their calibre, carried throughout the five songs. The EP’s eponymous track satirises our modern culture of self-worship, with the cry ‘it’s just a sign of the times’ signalling the forfeit of redemption in favour of nihilism. The track opens with a Greta Thunberg quote that perfectly encapsulates how self-involved we have become: a young woman speaking at the UN, begging them to take responsibility, and yet she becomes the target of abuse.
Who cares about public approval when you have integrity?
The spotlight on JET FUEL CHEMISTRY has grown steadily brighter following a whirlwind of live shows across Ireland, more than holding their own as support to a string of powerhouse US rock bands from Halestorm to Hundredth.
