Stop-starting their way to stardom, the curious new Childhood video for 'Falls Away' sees the London-based four-piece being visually chopped-and-screwed in a smart stop-motion setting. Doing fairly routine band things - instruments and all - everything's given a slightly trippy edge, with mini hallucinations backing a track that's arguably the band's most 'out there' to date. The Dan Carey produced number still thrives in its simplicity, though - the same applies here.
Alden Volney directs the new video. Check out forthcoming Childhood dates below the player, including a set at Latitude Festival. A debut album is due out this summer.
