The Truth: AUGUST CHILD is still a gently pained singer-songwriter based living in Leytonstone but with roots in St Albans, deep in the aching heart of Hertfordshire. He combines intricate guitar with intimate lyrics for stirring and powerful one-man performances, and ‘Ebb & Flow’ is his new promo track, lifted from the 'Burn For The Tide' EP which was released earlier this year and drew full-bloodied comparisons with Sufjan Stevens, Angel Olson, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. Truly, if an artist called August Child can’t release an August tune what is the bally point?

Recorded at Old Street’s Fortress Studios with Night Games mastermind Paul Cousins, the four tracks on 'Burn For The Tide' exhibit an evolution and maturity to the artist’s creativity, not least with the complex-yet-flowing likes of previous lead-off single 'Honeycomb Prison' and the presciently-titled 'Ebb & Flow'. We'd describe the August Child sound as being 'fearsomely fragile', and we wouldn't be wrong. Nor indeed were the lovely people at Bittersweet Symphonies, who decided:

“I know we all look back fondly on our childhood and adolescence but we tend to forget the rough parts, the parts that ultimately defined us and shaped us into the boring adults we have become. Using these emotions to maximum effect, August Child has made a wonderfully crafted and touching body of work, which is not only captivating and authentic, but also addresses the weight of living in a powerful yet vulnerable way. Full of surprises waiting to be discovered with every passing listen.”

‘Burn For The Tide’ was the final release of the fierce panda 2017 EP Club, the sixth of six special EPs created by half a dozen febrile news acts and released by the panda over 12 months with the support of Arts Council England. The other five EPs were by acts with names like Cavalry, Fightmilk, Leaone, The Caress and Ghost Suns, and August Child played with a choice selection of those cats at the EP Club EP launch party at The Social in March. Since then he has dazzled with an excellent turn at The Great Escape in Brighton, partied with label mate S.G. Wolfgang at Birthdays and made his own melodic luck at the Melaki Festival in Herts in the summertime heat. Next up come these shows here:
