CHILDCARE – SINGLE REVIEW

Childcare – Film Club (Lost in the Manor Records) 
Childcare - Film Club


Release Date: 18th November 2016

Presumably this London crew chose their name because they like being criminally underpaid and hounded by Ofsted for no good reason while singing about bears and making seasonal greetings cards out of painted twigs. In their spare time, though, Childcare have managed to knock out a single in the shape of ‘Film Club’ and it’s, well, it’s infectious indie-pop with the energy of a slightly dark spirited 10-year-old with too much Relentless and access to a record collection beyond its years. The guitars are pure Django Django but then there’s Dutch Uncles in the time signatures, Franz Ferdinand in the slick pop ethic and Everything Everything in the futuristic euphoria of the song writing. It might be November but this is a late contender for single of the year and it’s a safe bet that 2017 will be a big year for this lot once they get done with their support slot on the Bastille arena tour. Superb stuff.



Live Dates:

12th November – SSE Hydro, Glasgow w/Bastille
13th November – Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle w/Bastille

28th November – ‘Film Club’ launch show @ The Waiting Room, London
