GroundSounds is excited to share the debut single from Suffer The Children. ‘Confessions’ finds the group straddling the line between electronic, hip-hop, and 90s trip-hop. Think Massive Attack with modern production.
Listen to ‘Confessions’ here:
Suffer The Children is a collaboration in the truest sense, with a sound as diverse as their backgrounds. They hail from London UK, Toronto ON, and Vancouver BC. Inspired by Phil Collins and today’s alt R&B, the sound is a mix of moody electronica, modern trap and 80’s alternative pop. At the production helm for this single is Grammy Award-winning producer Chin Injeti, who recruited his partner DJ Khalil to provide additional touches to the track. Between them, they’ve worked with many of today’s most influential artists including Drake, Eminem, Aloe Blacc, Raury, Joey Badass, The Clipse, Kanye West, Dr. Dre, and Jay-Z. Rian Peters, and Shallom Johnson round out the group, bringing a sense of artistry and poetics into every track.
Peters wants the project to demonstrate that one doesn’t have to be afraid of themselves artistically. “You can step outside of the box, you can be yourself,” he insists, “because I’ve been there before. When I started making music, I was myself. There was no rules, there was no boundaries, I just made music because I loved it. And I got deeper into it and you get told a lot of stuff, that ‘you should do this, you should be this way, you should look this way, you should make this type of music, you should follow in this person’s footsteps.’ And it just kind of destroys people’s souls, because you’re not making or creating what you truly want to create.”
