What if the most honest and essential parts of you were laid out in front of you as a dark terrain only you could traverse? Nothing makes sense, and everything makes sense. The artist-collaborative known as CH|LD, born in L.A and performed behind a single voice, creates a landscape of hazy, midnight dreams attempting to uncover just those parts of the self that have been forgotten but we all long to return to.
A shot of cold night air within charting musical trends, CH|LD marries a gritty form of pop with elements of Hip Hop, Alternative, and Indie successfully creating a fresh hyper-breed of pop music genre—informally known as Experimental Pop (X Pop).
One gets satisfyingly lost as the lyrics and melodies provide some familiar guideposts throughout, but often lead to bold and provoking new territory with no obvious trail home. This discomforting lostness is exactly the territory CH|LD wants to us discover. This appetizer of songs pricks at the listener as familiarity and friction churn, finally exploding in an insatiable desire to relent and surrender to the places we avoid within ourselves, places which desperately crave realization and release. It is a tantalizing taste of what is to come from the universe of CH|LD.
