CHILDCARE issue new single ‘Big Man’ via Elephant Records on 25th May - the first release from their forthcoming ‘Luckyucker' EP
The London 4-piece have been championed at radio by tastemakers including Annie Mac, Mistajam, Huw Stephens and John Kennedy; recorded a live session from Maida Vale on Radio 1; Playlist additions at both Radio X and Amazing Radio; a Record Of The Week on Virgin Radio; and played packed-out festival shows at The Great Escape and Reading and Leeds.
The band will head out on a two week UK headline tour in October to support the release of the 'Luckyucker' EP and are preparing their debut album for the end of the year.
Big Man is an alternative take on dealing with bubble-breaking disagreement and family friction - frontman Ed Cares explains:
"There's a place for fighting and affirming the values you stand up for, but too often we ridicule and dismiss those we disagree with. I'm bored of broad-brush Tory bashing and of hearing that everyone who voted for Brexit is stupid. This song is a reminder that we need to listen and try and understand those who believe differently from us."
