There is an encapsulating artistry flowing through the work of pop-trailblazer Childe. Pulling ideas from creative pursuits beyond merely music, from literature to art, the singer-songwriter is a searching and provoking sonic presence. Using music as a cathartic outlook, he has shaped himself into a creative powerful, which will be coming to a head across his highly anticipated forthcoming debut album, Stoned & Supremely Confident, set for release on 8th September.
As he gears up for the release of the album, the artist has unveiled a third teaser single, following the stellar efforts “Better Friends” and “Death Wish”. “Chemical Balance” is as visceral as it is emotive, with serene guitar work and immersive production laying the foundations for intricate and personal lyricism. Resolute in his description of difficult matters, Childe depicts his mentality in a refined yet explorative manner, highlighting his growing character and musicianship.
On the release, Childe says, “Medicating can be an effective part of managing depression and anxiety, but it’s being used as a blunt tool. Each brain is different. My sister was diagnosed as having bipolar disorder and I think that instead of numbing out her reaction to life, we have to look at why so many people are feeling like this. The world is broken, not the people.”
