Galaxians (21:30 – 22:30) stripped back the music and pumped up the vocals for their self-released second album, Chemical Reaction (2020), with Mason’s unstoppable voice elevating the group to a fully formed musical act. Clash again took the lead on the album, describing it as ‘[a] storming, potent, extremely direct return’, whilst MOJO magazine gave the album a 4/5 review. The band collaborated with dancer and mother of Manchester’s House of Ghetto, Darren Pritchard, and renowned BBC documentary filmmaker Clare Tavernor on the video for the album’s title track. It is to date the band’s most complete and considered work, and their fastest-selling release.
