Film Club

(Lost In The Manor Records)

Out 18th November 2016

Louder than War have a listen to the latest release from CHILDCARE

A recent signing of the prolific Lost In The Manor Records, CHILDCARE release their latest single Film Club on 18th November. Started in 2014 by Ed Cares (ex West London in-demand male nanny (!) hence the band name), and quickly augmented by Emma Topolski (bass), Rich Legate (guitar) and Glyn Daniels (drums)

CHILDCARE played some of their first shows at the Reading and Leeds festivals and soon released their debut single ‘Omega Grey’. Gaining some air time from Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Steve Lamacq, this fired on the band to keep the tunes coming in the form of Film Club.

For a 3 minute 13 seconds, there is plenty crammed in here! Some really nice riffs and motifs lead into a killer guitar hook that drives the track and gives it it’s overwhelmingly funky sound! It’s loose and full of call and response vocals between Cares and Topolski which give it a really nice post punk feel. Like The Fall maybe? And like The Fall, Film Club has a really nice chunky baseline that keeps the track chugging along.

It’s a great track. Have a listen now!
