The LA alternative electronic rock band Rose City Cinema give us a ravishing modern rock song consisting of retro electronic roots with Strange Chemistry. Rose City Cinema are influenced by 80s new wave bands like New Order to modern alternative rock bands like Incubus and Muse. Rose City Cinema consists of Ian Stahl on vocals and guitars, Eric DeLuca on bass, Jason Fragoso on drums, and Janzie on keys.
The artwork with an orange moon and other quirky elements sets the tone for the song. Strange Chemistry begins with muted guitar riffs as it fades into retro drum beats. Modern retro neo synths and synthy bass lines decorate the base of the track. We see the arrangement transitioning from this austere setup to dense keys and guitars coupled with tasty electronic production. The outro has some neat keys and uplifting chordal work. We get a concoction and chemical reactions that spin us new brilliant aural compounds. The song deals with not the usual quest of finding someone special, but when you get them and you can’t handle it.
The band was formed five years ago with the name Cilience. After their stunning last release Manhatten Pier in the world of groovy modern alt-rock, Strange Chemistry is the second single from their upcoming debut EP Blank Slate. They have performed at venues like the Viper Room and The Troubadour and also festivals like the Save Our Sea Festival. Their ability to blend retro and modern makes them unique in the genre. Rose City Cinema pushes us into a valley of rainbow sounds which inebriate in Strange Chemistry.
