When Childhood was formed back in 2012, the band had no songs and, according to frontman Ben Romans-Hopcraft, had never even played a single note. Having met fellow founder & guitarist Leo Dobsen at Nottingham University, the band were quickly joined by Dan Salamons on bass and their first single ‘Blue Velvet’ erupted onto the scene, an impressive debut and an exciting sign of what was to come. With the addition of Jonny Williams on drums, the band followed up with their second single “Solemn Skies” and cemented themselves as a certified hot ticket.
Lush, sonically-infused, scarily melodic, boisterous and brimming with a dreamy wanderlust that set them apart from the rest of the new bands on the scene, it set the tone for what was to follow; their fantastic debut album, ‘Lacuna’, recorded with legendary South London producer Dan Carey. Exhibiting the band’s undeniably varied influences and tastes, it highlights what can only be described as a super exciting new talent, prepared to explore and experiment, all the while managing to carve out their individuality. Resist them at your peril.
