The Child of Love‘s promo pic may make him look like a time traveler from feudal Japan, but the Dutch artist/producer’s preoccupations—weed, sex, dope beats…—should prove eminently relatable to contemporary music-lovers. On Fly, the latest single off his self-titled debut EP, a moody, yet driving synth beat sets the stage for verses whose religious content and mournful delivery call to mind classic spirituals like Wade in the Water. That, however, doesn’t stop director PENSACOLA from filling his official video with imagery of a more worldly nature, from hotboxed vehicles to girl-on-girl action. (In other words, it’s probably non-work safe.) Featuring this cut and many more fresh, eclectic jams, The Child of Lov’s freshman project is available now for purchase via iTunes.
