Back in April, South Londoners Childhood announced that they’d be releasing their brand new album ‘Universal High’ on 21st July via Marathon Artists – and lovers of soulful psych-pop rejoiced!
At the same time, they also shared a clip for ‘Californian Light’, which ironically according to Ben Romans-Hopcraft, “has nothing to do with the sunshine state at all. It was written as an ode to my relationships that define me as a person in London”. That didn’t make it any less of a powerful, vintage banger.
The latest cut from ‘Universal Light’, ‘Cameo’, is more of a lilting, laid-back number, but still contains enough funk and classic soul elements to have a little bit of a groove to. It’s another tune proving that Ben and co are hardly bit-part players.
Listen to ‘Cameo’ below.
Childhood will play Latitude (13th-16th July), where DIY is an official media partner. Tickets are on sale now. Visit diymag.com/presents for more information.
