Stock Child Wonder seems to bottle up that light & care-free feeling from the last two weeks of senior year in high school. This album is complex when you feel like listening to every note and simple when you feel like rolling the windows down to sing while driving home. We get a 90's-style feel when listening to this album and something to note is this is just the sophomore album from Knox Fortune, making 28-year-old Kevin Rhomberg (Knox Fortune) someone to keep your eyes on as he climbs the charts.
Bonus Content: The songs in Stock Child Wonder have high-key lyrics that have been described as “genderless” by Pitchfork meaning you’re not sure if you’re listening to a male or female sing - just pure quality. At first listen you might think the lead singer is a female, but the lyrics are actually all sung by Kevin Rhomberg himself and played back in “fuzzy layers” creating an ageless sound.
