Jack Garratt announces details of second EP “The Synesthesiac” with the broad palette pop of “Chemical”. Soulful and visceral, emotionally accurate to a pinpoint, “Chemical” succeeds on its standout set of intense melody and pushes further forward through its forward thinking and intelligent arranging (elements from UK bass to house to trap are subtly spread throughout the mix). “The Synesthesiac” is out April 13th on Island.
