Chiiild Expands Their Sound with Debut Album, ‘Hope For Sale’

Written by on July 23, 2021

Oh yeah, we’ve been ready for this one!

After teasing us with their Artificial Soul EP final 12 months, Chiiild – the magnificent duo of Montreal-bred, LA-based studio wiz Yoni Ayal (Usher, J. Lo) and Pierre-Luc Rioux – have stretched their psychedelic R&B sound to fill a large canvas with the discharge of their debut full-length album, Hope For Sale.

“Musically, it’s about chasing a sure feeling that you simply had when rising up,” Ayal tells Apple Music. “I didn’t understand how a lot nostalgia was part of my palette. I wished this file to replicate this second. For those who hearken to this file and keep in mind this time, I really feel like I’ve finished my job. And after I hearken to this file in 10 years, I’m going to recollect this second and it’s going to be a particular expertise for myself. And I hope it’s for everybody else.”

A hallucinatory blur of disco, funk, and pop that owes as a lot to Pink Floyd as D’Angelo’s Black Messiah, the album arrives at 11 songs – together with the previously-released singles: “Sleepwalking,” “Ultimately,” “Gone” and “Awake” with Mahalia (all of which landed on our Weekly Dope playlist) – and a further contribution from Jensen McRae.

After my first pay attention, two of my favourite tracks are “Weightless” and “Lotus,” however I’m positive you will discover your personal. Out now through Avant Backyard Data (shouts to my man, Azad!), Hope For Sale could be heard under. Press play and make sure to add the album wherever you get music.
