CloudKid Presents Silent Child - Puppet
The next song from Silent Child’s upcoming EP, ‘Graduation,’ is a love story — at least in the way that Silent Child knows how to tell when it comes to his honest, self-aware storytelling. On ‘Puppet,’ the artist and producer dreams big, lyrically and sonically, and finds himself inspired by Felly’s Heartstrings as he brings his own version of sonic romance to his repertoire.
He says, “This track is about being alone most of your life and dreaming of someone who will one day swoop down and profess their love for you. But of course, when you find that person, or they find you, you kind of find yourself unsure or unaware of what to do, because you were so used to an independent life with no strings. However, in this case, having strings attached to you doesn’t seem so bad anymore and you find yourself not ever wanting to live without those strings, which is where the narrative — and the name of the track — come into play: a puppet on strings.”

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.
