Counting James Blake and Noah “40″ Shebib as major influences is newcomer CHCKLK, who released a striking debut single in the form of The One, for which he also unleashed a dusky music video. Described as a pleasingly weird and slightly nomadic artist, CHCKLK also seems to channel some The Neighbourhood and a dash of Chet Faker on The One, a mosaic concoction that brings together hip hop, soul, electronic, and pop. Produced by New York’s Rohme, The One is a gritty and meditative yet moving and swooning debut that examines life’s fickler nature. The Long Island based newcomer also created Kids of The Forest, a unique community of artists who aim to push boundaries and challenge societal conventions. The One is available to download off Soundcloud. CHCKLK promises more info about Kids Of The Forest soon.
