Listen: Childcare - 'Big Man'

Art-punkers Childcare have offered us the second taste of their upcoming EP 'Luckyucker' with new single 'Big Man'.

The new single is moody and bold, and a great follow up from 'Put Down Your Pen', it sees the band getting a bit darker with their sound, but also adding a big of a grove to it with it's almost reggae qualities to the song's chorus. The band came together, when Ed Cares was humming a song he had written, and a six year old girl he was being a nanny for told him to form a band.

"You're probably my second favourite artist after Katy Perry."

And from that, they have made themselves into one of London's most talked about bands the moment. With a number of festivals including Reading and Leeds tucked under their belts, the band's live shows have certainly started to get a bit of a reputation.

The band will head out on a two week UK headline tour in October to support the release of the ‘Luckyucker’ EP.
