It’s been a minute since we last heard from Houston’s Children of Pop, the project founded by one Chase DeMaster, who also heads the eclectic label Very Jazzed. After taking some time off to collect his thoughts, he will be unloading a new 7″ on June 16th. “Poids,” found below, is the a-side (backed by “Étude en Cours”) of the release and can only be described as a slow-burner that slowly transitions into an audible strobe light of frenetic energy. DeMaster offered the following context of the song:

I took a few months off from writing and really tried to boil off some of the ideas I was working out of from last year’s full length. Lyrically, it oscillates between two polar perspectives. The things we ask from the ones we love, after time, tend to reflect the notion that our appetite for feeling, be it good, bad, or anything, is never quenched. We are hungry for stimulation in any form to acknowledge our existence. Further, “Poids” recognizes that being in that space is a privilege to begin with and forgetting that for a second is nauseating. We started playing this song live on the TV Girl and Chad Valley tours and I was completely taken by it. It lives on the recording in a much more tranquil place, while live it becomes something so emotive it’s almost paralyzing to perform in front on an audience. A track with weight.

Pre-order for the 7″ both digitally and on an extremely limited edition lathe cut is available the project’s Bandcamp.
