The South-London outfit return with new wonderfully surreal sounds.
Following the critical success that was 2019’s Wabi-Sabi, South London outfit CHILDCARE return sounding as tight and razor sharp as ever.
The mastery in CHILDCARE’s sound is the synergy between feeling both endlessly exploratory and creative while always maintaining a catchy sense of accessibility and fun. ‘Karaoke Mantra’ is the latest in a long line of tracks that feels uniquely daring and CHILDCARE but packed full of stylistic risks and quirks that feel seamlessly enjoyable. The track is more of CHILDCARE at their best, with effortlessly swirling sounds complimenting the dual vocals of frontman Ian Cares and bassist Emma Topoolski, which have arguably never complimented each other more. This is truly stellar work from an outfit that we have now simply come to expect it from, and we can’t wait to hear more from one of the UKs premiere creative forces.
“For [male guitarist] Rich’s Birthday I bought us tickets to an all-night gong experience,” explains singer Ian Cares, “so we packed our sleeping bags and cereal bars and headed to a church in west London, with the promise of ‘release old and stale energy’, ‘energize your life’ and ‘allow your soul surround your body’”..
