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.
