Stoke-based trio 10 o’clock Chemical release infectious and introspective new single Crucify.
Headed up by singer Rhys Oakes, who started writing songs in his bedroom as a teenager in his native Stoke on Trent, the now four-piece band from Stoke-on-Trent have a unique artistic vision and create hybrid music which they’ve termed “GRITPOP”.
Speaking about ‘Crucify’, Rhys explains, ‘The song is about Stockholm syndrome and the cycle of abuse, how easy it is for the abused to become the abuser unless recognised and the chain becomes broken. It’s about the moment you let someone you thought was important go but still live with the scars they scolded on to you.’
Catch the band play Pilgrims Pit and The Sugarmill in Stoke-on-Trent on 3 and 17 November, respectively.
