Childcare London UK quartet CHILDCARE unveil slinky new single Put Down Your Pen, released 24th November via Elephant Records. CHILDCARE strike a more sombre note on their latest single Put Down Your Pen, a muscle shuffle of a letter to a pen-friend, in a Smokey Robinson meets At The Drive In kind of a way. The sleepy, ever-descending bass groove draws you in, before angular guitar squalls bring you juddering back to your senses. Vocalist Ed Cares delivers his most softly spoken performance to date, before the invigorating chorus takes a more imperious turn.

On the track‚Äôs theme, Cares gives little away: “This song is about a penfriendship I had with someone.” The quartet is completed by Emma Topolski (Bass, Vocals), Rich Legate (Guitar, Backing Vocals) and Glyn Daniels (Drums, Backing Vocals). [via Super cat PR]
