The Chemical Brothers: The Darkness That You Fear – Daft Punk may be over and out but the real big beat kings remain in dance

“The Darkness That You Fear is a hopeful piece of music. 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.” – Tom Rowlands says about new dance psychodelic piece by The Chemical Brothers. 

Colours of their sound transcended to colourful new half animated video directed by @Ruffmercy.

“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.”

The song is not the highpoint of their work but it grooves for all the trapped dancers around the world in a right direction. (Carla Stormeazy)
