Today, our new music spotlight is on CHILDCARE.
Line-up: Ed Cares (vocals), Emma Topolski (bass/vocals), Rich Legate (guitar) and Glyn Daniels (drums)
About: CHILDCARE were formed in 2016 by Ed, formerly one of west London’s most in-demand male nannies. Ed enlisted local musicians Emma, Rich Legate (guitar) and Glyn Daniels (drums) to complete the group and two years on, the band have made some serious waves across the continent. They have played with the likes of Bastille on their recent arena tour and already released two critically acclaimed EPs with extensive BBC Radio 1 support. They have also had wide-spread blog coverage from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, Clash, DIY and Indie Shuffle to name but a few. With Bamboo, CHILDCARE continue to spread their idiosyncratic sound far and wide, watch out world! Bamboo is out on 9th November 2018 via Big Indie Records
What Hidden Herd say: Hidden Herd favourites CHILDCARE return with spellbinding new single ‘Bamboo’, which sees bassist Emma Topolski at the helm with a soothing perfromance that takes the band to a dreamy new dimension.
