CHILDCARE announce UK ‘Luckyucker’ tour. In celebration of the release of their Luckyucker EP, CHILDCARE are heading out on a full UK tour in October.
The group’s now oft recanted formation story remains a point of interest. It all started when Ed Cares, one of West London’s most in-demand male nannies, was overheard humming a song he had written, by Katie, aged six, who persuaded him to form a band. Josh, eight, boldly proclaimed: “You’re probably my second favourite artist after Katy Perry.”
Their debut EP, Made Simple, released last year, earned them all sorts of tastemaker acclaim and national radio play with prestigious UK tastemakers DIY, The Line of Best Fit, Wonderland and The 405 all tipping the group as one’s to watch.
With a sling of festivals including the legendary Reading and Leeds and a recent Radio 1 Maida Vale session tucked safely under their belts, the band’s vivid and visceral live show has gone from strength to strength.
By adding yet another stellar release to their oeuvre in Luckyucker , CHILDCARE look set to cement themselves as one of London’s most exciting emerging acts.
The quartet is completed by Emma Topolski (Bass, Vocals), Rich Legate (Guitar, Backing Vocals) and Glyn Daniels (Drums, Backing Vocals).
Childcare play The Sunflower Lounge Birmingham on Tue 9th October 2018. Tickets available here.
