Meet the no-face artist

Irish artist Somebody’s Child has something called maskaphilia – all of his photos cover his face with either photoshopped scribbles, facepalm, instruments, and random shit he found during the photoshoot. There are two explanations for this odd behavior: a) he’s an international spy who has a knack for indie music or b) he’s in the FBI most wanted list. His latest single “Distance” is a trip to our pubescent years where we carry the Romeo-and-Juliet Complex and we’re just a hopeless stack of firing hormones who would even break our curfews to be with our partners. Through smashing percussions and explosive choruses, Somebody’s Child captures the chaotic euphoria of being young and bold:

Somebody’s Child is originally from Dublin and broke into the scene with his debut single “make You Alright.” Since his inception, he has started his own record label, played in various festivals, supported Kodaline, and done an amazing job not getting caught by FBIcovering his face. Expect an official video for “Distance” to drop soon.
