Armagh/Belfast based pop-rock band, ‘Hello Casanova’ is back with, ‘Childhood Love’! A bouncy, anthemic and contagious number from their debut 7 track album, ‘Daughter’. Hello Casanova are Matt Irwin (guitar and vocals), Ethan Williamson (guitar and vocals), and Padraig Norton (vocals, drums and percussion) and Oisin Jayat (vocals and bass). “The single is a fast-paced, catchy and nostalgic tune which I think most people can relate to” ‘The track is about that childhood crush you had when you were a kid and when you look back on it, you realise how ridiculous it was. The song is a light-hearted apology for thinking I found the girl of my dreams at 8 years old!’ Matt Irwin stated about the track.
With a soaring lead guitar line by Ethan Williamson and a driving snare roll from Padraig, the track captures the listener's attention immediately! The story like nature of the verses feels relatable and with a fun and prominent baseline, we are driven to the hook-filled chorus that features a mix of harmonies and backing vocals that will stay with you for days!
The song was written, recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by the band. Ethan Williamson says, “After recording with producers and in a number of studios, we felt it was necessary and would be refreshing to do it all ourselves! We really wanted to cement this release for us and embrace a new sound and our evolution our own way! Thankfully the folks up at,‘Glasgowburry Studios let us use their facilities and a special thank you goes to Stephen O’Hagan for helping us out when we needed it!”.

The music video was shot at the band's rehearsal space by the band. The aim of the video was to capture the bands personality and create a fun performance video that the viewer could laugh and connect with! Their vast amounts of energy during shows, along with fabulous crowd interaction and passion, have taken them as far as the west coast of the United States. They have also earned support slots with hot acts such as, ‘The Sherlocks’, ‘Fangclub’, ‘A Plastic Rose’, ‘Brand New Friend’ and ‘Jealous Of The Birds’. Their live show has been praised as intimate and infectious, with the whole band getting involved with the crowd and playing their heart out!
“Childhood Love is a delight to play live and one of my favourite tunes from the album. It’s a love song that I don’t think has been written about all that much before, it has tons of energy, full of hooks and just a song that hopefully people can relate to!” Oisin Jayat said on the single!
The release date of their debut record is to be announced.
