Childhood is an odd state of mind.
Children lack the self-awareness, the experience to truly appreciate their innocence, meaning that any definition of childhood is crafted have from memory and half from invention.
In keeping with this, London newcomers Childhood often seem to be half-submerged in blissful nostalgia. New cut 'As I Am' is online now, and it feels as though it's an apparition, as if it could simply fade away with the slightest touch.
A breezy summer anthem in waiting, there's a deeply English sensibility to 'As I Am' which is immediately contagious.
Listen to it now.
Childhood are set to release their debut album 'Lacuna' on August 11th.
