The Chemical Brothers – No Surrender (1999)

Sophia Piper

Howard of Effingham School, aged 12

The Chemical Brothers No Surrender album gives me the idea of retro or futuristic vibes. I think this is because it gives us an insight into what the future of music looks like.

It includes a variety of instruments and has a specific feel to it – I find this style unique and interesting to listen to! 

I like the different types of sounds that they have created using different sounds on the deck. One song that I feel reminds me of one of my favourite bands – The Prodigy. One of their songs out of Space has a very similar vibe to Orange Wedge.
