Texas-bred brothers Chemical Diary have a new batch of songs recorded at legendary Sunset Sound in Hollywood. “What Actually Did Happen” is a rockin’ tune that rides a strong bassline and rhythm as its psychedelic character unfolds. Though we’re not overly impressed with the lead vocal, and with the thin-sounding guitar tone, the song’s unique lyrics and melody are standouts. Another catchy melody can be found in “Happy Being Me,” a slice of nasally power-pop. The duo veers toward the punk rock realm with “Legalization,” a song about––you guessed it––weed and its decriminalization. Overall, we feel that these recordings are solid as song demos, but could be further developed in the recording studio.
