The Chemical Brothers vs. Jacob Epstein
Tate Modern invited The Chemical Brothers to walk around the gallery and find a work of art that would inspire them to write a track.
It was Jacob Epstein’s Torso in Metal from ‘The Rock Drill’ that grabbed their attention. It’s a menacing sculpture made out of bronze. The Chemical Brothers said that they wanted to ‘capture the latent feeling of force that the figure has’. The result is their latest track, The Rock Drill.
We’d love to play you a little bit but we can’t. At the moment, the only place you can hear it is at Tate Modern next to the sculpture.
From 1 October, you’ll also be able to hear the track online here.
