CloudKid Presents Silent Child & AViVA - Class Clown
Atlanta-based Silent Child returns to CloudKid to release the second track of his upcoming EP “Graduation.” In collaboration with Los-Angeles based singer-songwriter, AViVA, “Class Clown” is a powerful, rhythmic, alt-rock track that circles all the emotions and feelings of seeing someone you trust switching sides.
Silent Child says, “// Love turned to malice and excitement turned to annoyance // are a few of the song’s lyrics, so you can imagine what kind of vibes are on this track. This song is about a deep relationship that you had with someone that was clearly only important to one side of the relationship while the other person was just kind of there stringing you along, laughing at you behind your back, which is where the clown reference comes into perspective.”

With his viral single, ‘F*ck You’ alone wracking up hundreds millions of streams across all streaming platforms, the path Silent Child has taken to becoming a well-revered producer exploded even from its foundations. Following a journey that took him from pouring over music production as a teenager to being playlisted on mainstay accounts, his name is now a staple within music spaces across the globe. At 22, he’s set himself apart from the throes of new artists who’ve been pushing their way to the front over recent years. He has decided to set the pace himself after the subsequent three years, with his talent setting the precedent and his push for new spheres within his production is a reflection of what’s to come. A host of collaborations also sit within the vast back catalogue which the artist has at his disposal – proving that his influence stretches across the spectrum of music genres. With names including Vosai, UNDREAM, PURGE, Omido, Creme, Kina & Galvanic and Lani Daye, he’s not only been focused on his own signature but those of his counterparts too, merging the two which has spread his sonics to new crowds. On this track is such the collaboration with Los Angeles-based, AViVA, an artist unafraid of baring all in her music. AViVA and her unique alt pop-rock emo sound has created a growing groundswell online, building a strong community of fans – ones she calls, her ‘Outsiders.’ Since her start, she has continued to explore the themes of control and isolation in her music, describing her songs as being part of an “Outsider experience,” something clearly expressed in both her lyrics and the sonic palate of her catalog. Since her debut single ‘GRRRLS‘ in late 2017, her distinct sound and message has garnered the support of tastemakers globally on YouTube and Spotify, also leading her to tour with the likes of Yungblud, Poppy, Pale Waves, among numerous festivals. Since then, she’s amassed over 3 billion global streams collectively. Together, the compelling, ‘Class Clown’ out now on CloudKid!
