Their self titled debut release is a look through the pinhole at a bands honest and unhindered purge of expression. Drawing influence from an ever growing, ever evolving sonic palette; You will find Child’s roots tightly entwined in and around the Blues whilst taking a heavier and more visceral approach. The group take pride in upholding the strong tradition of Australian rock that preceded them which gave birth to likes of AC/DC, The Easybeats, Rose Tattoo, Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs and Masters Apprentices to name a few.

Child are honoured to fly the flag and will leave no crack unfilled as they spread their brand of heavy psych blues across the earth. All that can be said is great things are on the horizon for this trio.

“The buzz is currently swirling around this amazing three piece from Melbourne, Australia. The reviews are starting to trickle in as people just can’t get enough of the soulful, heavy fuzzed-out blues trip brought to you by Child. The bass barrels through your chest as the crushing fuzz paralyzes while you are drawn in by the soothing impassioned vocals. Songs such as opener “Trees” and “Mean Square” will leave you gathering up your jaw from the ground. Year end top 10 for sure. I can’t recommend this album enough. Now go listen!”

“An entirely new acquaintance to me, Melbourne-trio Child had me right away with their self-titled 5-track debut. Their slow, seedy and dirty stoner blues is the perfect remedy for a bad day as it oozes misery and despair like any proper blues album should. And that is the cure when you feel you’re in the gutter. Having only started out in 2012 the vibes this trio conjurs goes 40-50 years back into the heartland of the American swampy delta blues, hell they could have been with Robert Johnson when he struck a deal with the devil at the crossroad. It is that damned good, you hear!

Don’t know how many times I’ve said it before but surprises like Child’s self-titled debut is something I want more of. It brings life to music and shakes my world around, making it fresh again. And it’s so rewarding to hear bands that can actually make new music out of old styles in an era when most bands and artists goes for the safe route, i.e. fodder stuff or muzak. Great job guys and I can’t wait to hear more from you!”
