We make no secret of having our favourites, and South London outfit Childcare are most definitely one of those. Man Down is the first single to be released from the band’s eagerly-awaited debut album, due for release in February 2019.
Singer Ed Cares said of the track: “At the risk of being accused of jumping on the mental health bandwagon, this song is a rallying cry to my fellow man; be vulnerable, be open, be sensitive and don’t be afraid to moisturise your knuckles if they get dry.”
Cares and bandmates Emma Topolski (bass), Rich Le Gate (guitar) and Glyn Daniels (drums), have been steadily buildng momentum over the past couple of years and have already picked up a committed following. There’s a lot of creative invention in their brand of leftfield art-punk pop, and a sense that they’ve yet to reach anything close to their full potential.
But don’t take our word for that…. you can check them out for yourself. The band are on an extensive UK tour now and for most of this month – dates and tickets here.
