British Indie-Rockers The Alchemy Release New Video Single ‘Give Me The Sky’ Ahead Of UK Tour

Merging indie, rock and electronic influences in their songs, The Alchemy release their latest new video single ‘Give Me The Sky’, ahead of their album release and UK tour. 

The quartet formed back in 2015, with their debut EP Modern Age in early 2016 firmly placing them with high regard amongst the press and strong fans. The Alchemy supported the likes of Mallory Knox, I Am Giant, and The Intersphere.

For fans of Lower Than Atlantis and Lonely The Brave, their new single is worth a listen.

‘Give Me The Sky’ was recorded in their hometown of Canterbury with the help of vocalist Rhys Taylor’s Uncle, who had worked with Klaxons and Eagles Of Death Metal. The lyrics reflect the traumatic year Rhys had after his girlfriend was left unable to walk for a number of months following a car accident.

The video narrative follows the uncertainty of one of the last remaining survivors, who appears fighting for survival yet the repetition of lyrics “let go of your past” suggests to live in the present, despite the uncertainty of what can lie ahead.

Rhys said:

“This was a really tough time for both of us and with ‘Give Me The Sky’ I wanted to capture the feeling that the future is never set in stone, but even in the face of unfavourable odds, a positive outcome can (and does) arise.”

  • 14th November – Fuel, Cardiff
