CHILDCARE were formed in 2016 by Ed Cares, formerly one of west London’s most in-demand male nannies. Overheard humming a song he had written years before, Ed was persuaded by Katie, then aged six, to form a band. He enlisted local musicians Emma Topolski (bass), Rich Le Gate (guitar) and Glyn Daniels (drums). The band has now been together for several years, performing successfully under the only logical moniker in the circumstances: CHILDCARE.
Enthused with the energy of punk, the infectiousness of The Police and a by-numbers approach to songcraft akin to Happiness In Magazines-era Graham Coxon, CHILDCARE are a band on the up, making skewed, idiosyncratic, art-punk pop that is gaining them eager fans across the continent. Having recently sold out Omeara and releasing two critically acclaimed EPs with extensive BBC Radio 1 support and wide-spread blog coverage from the likes of Indie Shuffle and The Line of Best Fit, CHILDCARE will be babysitting their way onto a stereo near you in the future.
