There’s a new girl on the block by the name of Lavachild, and we hope this Brooklyn-via-Vancouver transplant is here to stay. The solo project of one Chantel Marie, Lavachild seizes you from the opening notes of debut single “Want U To” and never lets up. Like the perfectly minimalist middle point between the enchanted pop of Mononoke and low-key grace of Wet, “Want” is a masterclass in elegant understatement, the soft instrumentals laying the foundation over which Chantel’s lush vocal pirouettes take center stage. The perfect soundtrack for a midnight wander through NYC, the video finds Lavachild doing just that, and we’ve got the exclusive premiere for you above.
