On EILE’s music slot this morning, we feature Los Angeles-based, pop/electronic/alternative artist, Parker Bossley, and his debut single, Chemicals.
Parker says that music has always been the centre of his world, and describes his parents as “voracious music fans.” He signed his first record deal at 15, and began touring North America with his band. He then took his family’s advice and moved to Los Angeles, to follow a solo career.
“Sometimes you’re so boxed in by your life you don’t realize the options. In your heart of hearts you always know what you’re supposed to be doing.”
“Chemicals,” Parker says, illustrates his life from late teens to early twenties. “It’s me writing about my relationships with drugs and love. The hook was spawned in my head on the third day of a festival when the drugs just literally didn’t work anymore.”
The retro-style video for the single shows Parker’s animated image transported into a dazzling menagerie of land and sea creatures, courtesy of London-based animation and puppetry director, Joseph Wallace. Enjoy!
