Discovery: An Only Child

An Old Child is an American alternative R&B artist whose intimate and emotional new track I Could Get A Tattoo In Paris had me enraptured.

By Graeme Smith

There’s a certain sadness to the track, one that seems very grounded in the reality of life and the circumstances we often find ourselves within. A stripped back, acoustic opening puts soulful vocals and poetic storytelling front and centre. There’s a heart-rendering strain to things, which builds as the arrangement does. Bass, strings, keys and synths join in one after another, giving proceeding a lush texture.

I Could Get A Tattoo In Paris is, in a word, stunning, and I think your soul will be richer for hearing it. Check it out below.
