Bio

"Expansive, nuanced and melodic, it seems these Perth newcomers are focusing on imprinting themselves on your heart." - NME Magazine, London.

Etching its beginnings in early 2013 as a project for songwriters Chloe McGrath and Jane Azzopardi, Perth quartet Childsaint has been described as grim, gritty, angelic and beautiful all in one sentence. 2014 has seen Childsaint in full bloom with the addition of drummer Ashlyn Koh and bass player Rhian Todhunter.

Childsaint's debut single "Dessert" was released in June and has been well received by the online music community receiving glowing reviews in the UK's NME Magazine and DIY, and received high rotation on Sydney's FBi Radio and Perth's RTRFM. Childsaint appeared at RTRFM's Winter Music Festival and supported Husky for the Fremantle show of their July tour.

Childsaint's debut EP "Sick" was released to a sell out crowd in September, and was the local feature record on RTRFM. The band recently appeared at the 2014 WAM Festival and are reuniting with Husky again in December as the main support for the WA leg of their album tour.

Dave described this as "refined doom" and now I can't stop imagining teenagers swaying sullenly to this in the Hulabalooza epiosde of the simpsons

Liking hearing this band make a natural, darker next step on from Hallelujah Heartbreak. It's got a refined doom about it, the last minute or so especially coming off like the soundtrack to the walls closing in.
