Model Child

Model Child is the project of LA-based songwriter and musician Danny Parker. Drawing on influences like Le Tigre, of Montreal, and The Prodigy, Parker fuses in-your-face punk sensibilities with razor-sharp pop craftsmanship to create raw, honest, and darkly playful dance-punk anthems. Growing up in Northern Virginia, Parker split his time between friends’ garage bands and the school marching band, developing an eclectic taste for both wild DIY jams and tight theatrical productions -- dueling elements on full display at Model Child’s rousing live shows, which feature costumes, props, and thrilling onstage antics. This energy permeates Parker’s music, which showcases his cutting sense of humor as he turns private experiences into political commentary.
