Brace yourself, the bold eclectic sound of Childcare hits like an unstoppable juggernaut. With its barbed six-string licks, floor-shuddering beat and baying vocals, new single ‘Film Club’ is a hook-infested gem that leaves an instant and lasting impression.
Imagine the supersized riffs of Royal Blood colliding with the angular art pop of Franz Ferdinand and you’re in the right ballpark. The London band straddle the gap between those two acts with their own brand of razor-sharp British guitar music, which combines post-punk, slacker rock, G-funk and Bhangra.
Inspired by main man Ed Cares’ trips to cinematic gatherings in order to impress a fellow attendee, ‘Film Club’ is a dizzying return after being holed up in the studio.
