Up and coming artist CHAILD released their latest single “Playground” on September 30th; you may need to brace yourselves for the piercing melancholy which hits you in this darkly progressive Alt Pop mix.
It’s impossible not to feel the lyrical resonance contained in the atmospheric single which builds up from ambient downtempo into orchestrally layered high-octane cinematic Alt Pop.
Playground is the perfect example of how true visceral beauty can be pulled from the darkest and most morose places. That’s definitely not something you’ll extract from most Pop singles. CHAILD is a uniquely talented artist and without doubt one of the deftest wordsmiths I’ve had the pleasure of discovering in a while.
CHAILD has recently relocated from Luxembourg to Liverpool to find new inspiration and to get involved with other inspiring creatives. It’s safe to say they’ll be welcomed with open arms in the North.
