This release just barely catches the tail end of summer but wtf this was a perfect summer jam. I feel like I’ve been robbed of valuable sweaty months this would have accurately soundtracked. This is really exceptional stuff on all levels, buttery smooth chillwave. Get on it.
Limited LP version with a bonus 7" featuring two exclusive tracks. Sweet, sad, summery and swoonsome in equal measure, Chilhood's debut cuts to the heartfelt core of the band in giddily hook-laden style. Largely recorded over six weeks at the Streatham studio of Dan Carey (Toy / Bloc Party / Franz Ferdinand), cues for the emotional, wistful sound of 'Lacuna' can be found in former single 'Solemn Skies' and a re-recording of debut track 'Blue Velvet', now featuring harmonies from a 14 year old school friend of Carey's daughter. For fans of Felt, Mgmt and early Creation Records. Limited copies come with a bonus 4 track CD featuring 'Bond Girls' and 'Semester' plus remixes by Sonic Boom and Jack Savidge.
