The latest EP from CHAiLD, Urgent Care, has just been released, which includes a focus track bearing the same title. The up-and-coming pop artist, originally from Luxembourg and presently residing in Brussels, treats our auditory senses to his one-of-a-kind, calming yet powerful vocals.
CHAiLD's melancholic universe is unveiled to us through a stripped-down production of piano chords and a faint drum and bass rhythm in the background. As the track unfolds, CHAiLD's harmonies intensify until we encounter chilled electronic drum and bass beats. Through his music, CHAiLD emerges as a voice for the current generation of queer youth who seek self-expression.
The artist comments on his EP, “Urgent care is my way of opening up to myself and to others. Throughout my life, I thought vulnerability was a flaw and that showing weakness resulted in an open invitation for people to hurt me. However now, I know I am allowed to tell people I’m not ok. It is ok to break down and to accept the fact that the world feels just a bit too much to handle from time to time. So, from now on, I will try to heal from the hurt I’ve been carrying within me. And most importantly, instead of dealing with it alone, I will ask for help. Yes, I am in urgent need for care.”
