Listen :: Childcare - Big Man
Words: Sam Geary
'Big Man' is the new tune and second taste of the band's upcoming 'Luckyucker' EP that seeks to address the difficulties of contrasting world views, immigration and accusations of liberal elitism, all in under four minutes.
"There's a place for fighting and affirming the values you stand up for, but too often we ridicule and dismiss those we disagree with," says frontman Ed Cares. "I'm bored of broad-brush Tory bashing and of hearing that everyone who voted for Brexit is stupid. This song is a reminder that we need to listen and try and understand those who believe differently from us."
The EP follows last year's debut ‘Made Simple’.
The band will head out on a two week UK headline tour in October to support the EP release.
