The Child of Lov • Heal
Heal is the first single from the forthcoming The Child of Lov debut album, which features contributions from DOOM, Thundercat and Damon Albarn. It’s a scorching piece of modern soul funk driven along on an engine of fuzzed out analog bass carrying with it a posse of southern fried vocals. If you like Prince, Jai Paul or James Brown, then this is for you. It's backed with a cover of D'Angelo's One Mo'Gin from the classic Voodoo album. The 7" comes incased in a sleeve designed by The Child of Lov himself. .
The accompanying video was shot in Atlanta, Georgia, USA by the much loved LA-based duo Focus Creeps...
The Child of Lov is one guy. He writes, produces and performs his music using guitars, a cheap pink bass, a keyboard, some self-made instruments, a lot of raw vocal harmonies and a big hip hop heart. He started making music secretly at age 15, and even now in his early twenties, likes to retain some privacy - which is why he's not releasing much information about himself. The Child of Lov has been living more or less like a recluse for the past few years, spending time in London, Paris and Amsterdam, whilst being more artistically rooted in the southern state of Georgia, USA. This wandering solitary one man music collective is currently working on his first album, to be released by the Domino affiliate Double Six. Those in the know have likened his music to such names as Gnarls Barkley, Jai Paul and Prince.
