Child of the Parish continue their stellar run of form as they today share their new single ‘Quiet Life’, which is their first release of 2022. Listen HERE. It previews their eagerly anticipated second EP ‘Quiet Life’, which will be released on 22ndApril. Pre-save  HERE.

The new single ‘Quiet Life’ finds the sonic alchemists creating something idiosyncratic from their wide-ranging reference points. Punchy hip-hop beats and bass provide the foundation for the duo to experiment with everything from luscious, dreamy vocal harmonies that feel like a voice from another dimension, swathes of dystopian synths, and a talkbox effect rarely heard since the ‘70s.

The track features co-production from Paul White (Danny Brown, Charli XCX) and mixing courtesy of Nathan Boddy(James Blake, Celeste, Mura Masa, London Grammar).

Child of the Parish commented, “‘Quiet Life’ is about how often life is anything but. Having escaped to the countryside myself in pursuit of this, and not particularly calmed down in any perceivable way, the song is semi-autobiographical. But it takes the idea on a bit of a wonky trip to bat-country, tipping a fisherman’s hat to the ether-soaked world of Hunter S. Thompson, one of my heroes in literature.

There are elements of hip hop in the production (we thought there was still room to squeeze a couple more genres into the album!), so we were delighted to have Paul White on co-production as we’re huge fans of his work on Danny Brown’s amazing ‘Atrocity Exhibition’.”

‘Quiet Life’ will feature on the upcoming EP alongside the recent singles ‘Midas Touch’ and ‘Forever’s Not Enough’. It will be completed by a brand new track in the shape of ‘Ghost of a Chance’.

Psychedelia, dance, rock, indietronica, disco, R&B, hip-hop: you name the genre and there’s every chance that you’ll hear an echo of it in Child of the Parish’s growing body of work. Consisting of brothers, producers and multi-instrumentalists Ben and Tom Vella, they first set out their creative agenda with their independently released debut EP  ‘Make It Better’.
