“Chemical Drugs is the story of thinking back on a relationship. “Sexual Drugs” and “Chemical Drugs” really sum the record up as showing both the infatuation at the beginning and then how to deal with it.” – Jon Benjamin, vocals
Indianapolis’ Karma Kids was formed in 2019 by Jon Benjamin and Zaac Wesco. Both members had backgrounds in emo, pop punk, and metalcore and decided to fuse the genres into their newly dubbed “emocore”. In the spring of 2020, they released the double album “Dystopian Dream”. The following months led to the band focusing more on the “emo” side of “emocore” leading them to start writing what would become the “Chemical Drugs” EP, which is out now.
