song: "Her Majesty II" - The Green Child
Our buds at GVB turned us onto this tune from The Green Child, which is a collaborative project between Mikey Young of Total Control and Raven Mahon of Grass Widow. The pair's self-titled debut drops January 12 and "Her Majesty II" is the perfect, alluring listen. The single incorporates the vintage keys and frenetic synths of Total Control but Mahon's vocals are dreary and whimsical, making for four and half minutes of pure bliss. Synths dot and twinkle throughout the single, as Mahon drifts unhurriedly along. It's playful but wistful, and provides you with just the perfect escape from a world of smartphone screens and breaking bad news.
