The British electronic music duo The Chemical Brothers is one of the hottest acts at the moment according to the international music service Last.fm. The act’s “Escape Velocity” tracks a 2,985 % increase with 19,466 listeners.
“Escape Velocity” was released as a white label promotional single this April ahead of the album release of Further and was the first single from The Chemical Brothers since 2007’s “The Salmon Dance” and was succeeded by “Swoon” this May. Further was only released this June and has so far reached the top ten in Greece and Switzerland.
Further entered the Swedish album tally at No.56 this week, but no single has charted from the album yet. The biggest hit remains “Setting Sun” which peaked at No.5 back in 1996. That track topped the UK singles chart and the US dance chart.
