Interview With Lovechilde
EUPHORICALLY SOMBRE POST-MODERN ATMOSTRONICA
Lovechilde is the audio-visual project of Eliot Childe (vocals/guitar) and James Dashwood (electronics/production), who made their live debut in New York last summer.
With songs revolving around the themes of coming of age, modern ennui and love and loss, Lovechilde’s music was built reductively; a process of dissembling tired models and chasing sparks of inspiration through the cracks in shattered paradigms to transcend the glut of guitar music they felt generationally entrenched in.
Lovechilde’s Tang/Tourniquet double A-side single is available now to download for nowt through the band’s website. If you can’t be arsed to go over there then we’re also dishing out Tang here. It’s free to anyone who has a shadow. Simultaneously euphoric and sombre it sees Lovechilde offer up a slice of post-modern urban dread against a backdrop of echo-filled synths, menacing bass drones and cutting guitar lines, all duking it out.
