One Day Has Come, The Child of Lov.

One Day Has Come, The Child of Lov.

Truth be known, I know only a reprehensibly negligible amount about The Child of Lov, aka NL eccentric Cole Williams, other than he’s a predilection for pineapple and ran with the whole anonymity thing for a while back there. Though out from the shadows and into the fray, he this week released his eponymous début full-length on Domino imprint Double Six – a record we neglected to review purely due to the above reasoning that we didn’t really know enough of him to come out with anything cogent. Though no matter, for what must surely be an album standout here arises to the surfaces of our attention: Williams may know as little of a certain Damon Albarn as we do of he, though he’s certainly got the best out of the melancholy monkey on One Day, The Child of Lov’s crinkly croon underpinned by Demon Days synth idiosyncrasy. It most evocatively recalls November Has Come – a track which incidentally hinged on the lackadaisical drone of DOOM, who just so happens to be in cahoots with Williams too. It’s a small world after all…

The Child of Lov is out now on Double Six.
