Chiiild Releases New Single “Back To Life”

Back at the end of July, Montreal-based Chiiild dropped one of the best songs of the summer, the smooth, retro banger “Count Me Out”.  The musician has now released another breathtaking single, which will be featured on their upcoming EP Synthetic Soul is set to drop Fall 2019 via indie tastemaker collective Avant Garden, “Back To Life”.

“Back To Life” features Zimbabwean artist, songwriter, poet, and activist Shungudzo. The song is “a metaphor, a fantasy that life is just practice and somehow in the future, we can get a second shot at this.” Shungudzo expands on this, saying “Chiiild and I wrote “Back To Life” on the day we met. We really bonded over being African artists who want to use music to tell stories about diversity, ask questions about humanity, and unify people over shared personal experiences. All of these themes are embedded in the lyrics of our song, and Chiiild’s music really compliments it, being so uniquely genre-bending yet still somehow reminiscent of something you’ve heard, or felt, before.”

The band is currently on a North American tour with label mates Emotional Oranges. The tour began in Vancouver, BC on September 14th at the Vogue Theatre followed by shows at LA’s Fonda Theatre, NYC’s Brooklyn Steel and Chicago’s Metro.
