Artist: Hilang Child
Label: Bella Union
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 10 August 2018

Hilang Child releases his debut album, Years, through Bella Union. Child (real name Ed Riman) is a half-Welsh, half-Indonesian, London-based singer-songwriter and soundscape-ist...

On the initial play through of Years, the first impression was that this had a distinct ring of Keane about it. It's not just the vocals, which are very similar, but also the entire soundscape. However, I'd argue that Child has a fuller, richer sound and more diversity.

The album contains 10 tracks (35 min, 26 sec) and as a debut album, and mostly self-mixed, I'd have to stick my neck out and say it doesn't get more impressive than this.
