This chorus will be stuck in your head, guaranteed.

Desert Island Lover is the latest from Canadian performer and producer BAD CHILD, which joins an indie-pop feel with a swing groove and a big chorus melody. With recent appearances at Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, and Osheaga, this young polymath has a bright future.

The track is meant as a sort of anti-romance in the wake of a string of dishonest relationships, as a way of finding redemption after the fact. With a unique perspective that stems in part from a traumatic youth, the success of BAD CHILD can be seen as a victory for anyone struggling with deep issues of conflict and mortality at a young age. The beat does not disappoint, and this chorus will be stuck in your head, guaranteed.

You stole my heartbeat, and my car keys
Look where you left me
Stuck picking daisies

BAD CHILD is a self-taught 21-year-old Canadian-born singer, writer, and producer who sought refuge in music after losing his mother as a child. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
