Hilang Child is the moniker of Ed Riman, a half-Welsh, half-Indonesian musician & songwriter from London. With a few exquisite tracks appearing quietly over the last year or so and praised highly by the likes of The Line of Best Fit, Clash Magazine and Stereogum, Hilang Child has also recently collaborated with Lost Horizons (the new project from ex-Cocteau Twin Simon Raymonde and ex-Dif Juz drummer Richie Thomas), co-writing two songs and performing in their live ensemble. Crafting expansive atmospheres with acoustic & electronic elements in his harmony-rich, multi-layered songs, a debut album is in the works for release in mid 2018 on Bella Union. Get down early to witness for yourself the magic of Hilang Child.
