CMU Approved

Approved: Childcare

By | Published on Wednesday 9 November 2016


Childcare are currently averaging one single release a year. By which I mean, they put out one last year, and now there’s another. Prolific they are not. But it’s quality not quantity that’s important. Did no one ever tell you that? You’re so needy. I hate you.

Yeah, anyway, single number two, ‘Film Club’, is about attending a film club mainly to impress another attendee – a whimsical tale that the band manage to imbue with all the drama of a tense thriller. Will she turn up to this screening of ‘Aladdin’? Who knows, but how about we bang these riffs off the walls a few times while we wait?

The band are currently supporting Bastille around the UK, with two more shows in Glasgow and Newcastle coming up this weekend. Then there’ll be an official launch show for ‘Film Club’ at The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington on 28 Nov.
