EXCITING indie band Childhood, pictured, bring their luminous brand of kaleidoscopic pop to Southampton in October.

The hotly-tipped four-piece have been lapping up the plaudits for debut album Lacuna, which was released on August 11, and will headline The Joiners on October 7.

Childhood’s catchy guitar riffs and anthemic vocals create a psychedelic ambience that pushes their sparse sound into sonic depths.

Founders Ben Romans-Hopcraft and Leo Dobsen formed Childhood at Nottingham University as a two-piece, making bedroom demos before bringing in Daniel Salamons on bass and Jonny Williams on drums.
