Aka London based musician Ed Cares who works as a nanny, looking after three kids who he road-tests his music on before it reaches our ears. That time spent with youngsters gives his music a sense of honesty and innocence that's not only welcomed. Influences range from The Strokes and Hives to David Bowie.
Enthused with the energy of punk and drenched in off-kilter pop sensibilities.
CHILDCARE played some of their first shows at the Reading and Leeds festival in August 2015 and soon released their debut single 'Omega Grey'. The song gained radio play on Radio 1 (Annie Mac, Huw Stephens) and 6 Music (Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson), it was named Track of the Day at Radio X, playlisted at Amazing Radio and garnered extensive blog coverage from the likes of Clash, Indie Shuffle and more.
At the end of 2016 CHILDCARE supported Bastille on several dates during their UK arena tour. 'Film Club' was then released on Lost In The Manor, gaining several plays from Radio 1 (Annie Mac, Huw Stephens), it was also named as Huw's BBC Introducing track of the week.
The band's third single 'Kiss' will be released in early 2017.
