Biography

Nottingham University (2012 – present)

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’ on 10 June 2013 on House Anxiety / Marathon Artists 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.


But there are many more artists with this name:

1) Story: Childhood was a nu metal band from Hungary, which was active between 2001-2003. In such a short period of time they recorded one demo record, played at all clubs in Budapest (capital of Hungary), achieved two headliner spots on a stage at Sziget Festival, one of the greatest European summer music festivals. In 2003, after the second Sziget appearance and right before a tour with some of the best nu metal acts of the time in Hungary the band split up because of personal issues.
