Upset The Rhythm
GREEN CHILD - Shimmering Basset LP
Includes d/l code. Insert with lyrics.
The Green Child is the musical collaboration of MIKEY YOUNG and RAVEN MAHON, who met in 2013 in when their bands, TOTAL CONTROL and GRASS WIDOW played a show in Oakland, California. They started writing songs together in Australia in 2014 and the project has been on a slow burn since.
The Green Child draw their sound from an illusory past as much as they stalk into pastures new. Broadly retro-futuristic in scope, verdant acres of lushly evocative synthesizers and blippy drum machines underpin most of their upbeat yet decidedly uncanny songs. Raven's calmly scenic and measured vocal flits like a will-o'-the-wisp throughout the tracks, proffering a guiding hand as she walks us through the often eerie, electronic concoctions.
