Not that many years ago, it felt as if every other buzz band was a bunch of bearded blokes who had sequestered themselves in the woods somewhere and returned with a rich folk/pop sound. The current trend seems to be for R&B singers who pair delicate falsettos with muted electronic production (clearly, we’re not mad at that sound when it’s done well), so it’s an especially nice surprise to hear Hilang Child’s “Chaturanga,” which shares much with the rich, pastoral sound that Fleet Foxes have done so well over two albums.

Hilang Child will release his fully home-recorded, debut First Writings EP on November 25. Listen to the beautiful, soaring “Chaturanga” below.
