Hailing from the wilderness of coastal California, The Child are a band filled with immense and unearthly paradox. Like a wild animal found deep within the crystal caverns of the subconscious brought to the concrete jungle and taught to function within the confines of the human's social world. Holly Marilyn Solem, a real white witch and performer since the age of 10 who eventually found herself honing her acrobatic stage antics in the city of Minneapolis before escaping to the west coast to live amongst the aliens that beckoned her name since youth. Norm Block, a wise Russian cleric whom has been sought to advise and aid musicians ranging from Plexi to Mark Lanagan and papercranes. These two wandering souls found each other amongst the starry night skies during a winter's solstice 2008 AD.Recording over 20 tracks during the first half of 2011, The Child was fostered by Los Angeles upstart label MANIMAL (Warpaint, Bat for Lashes, Papercranes, Sister Crayon) to release their debut 6 track EP titled simply The Child. The songs themselves embody the unorthodox mecca vs. orga method in which electronic sounds are bred with acoustic and electric guitars and live complex textured drums. When the calling for The Child to begin performing live, they incorporated two members Lauren White (aka Lauren Rocket) on synths/vocals and Peter Simon on bass guitar.
