Play New Childhood Single Here: Solemn Skies

They're back!

(And still no word on when a full-length is gonna drop but...)

Childhood have dropped a new single "Solemn Skies" and it's a near-euphoric jam. Think that "soaring bit" in "Blue Velvet" stretched into its own tune. It's the sort of song Ashcroft and his Verve boys spent a lifetime trying to write but they just couldn't cut loose and nail it.

"Solemn Skies" is more direct than earlier Childhood cuts, like "Haltija", and it's all the more special for that.

It's a sign that the band is not just sticking to one trick.

And I dig that about them!

Play "Solemn Skies" below and follow the band on their Facebook page:
