CHILDCARE announce UK ‘The Sabi’ tour in support of their debut album ‘Wabi-Sabi’, released via Get Well Soon (with eOne Music) and will be bringing live healing to venues across the country this November and December. As part of the group’s ‘Get Well Soon’ wellness campaign, attendees can expect a mixture of mindful eating, yogic breathing and mass meditation alongside the band’s usual collection of left-field softcore psych performances. The Sabi Tour will also offer participants lavender scratch’n’sniff vinyl, personalised bath bombs, handmade scented candles and sleepwell audio meditations. Selected dates will include additional Personal Glory™ events at the venue before the main performance.
London’s premier softcore-psych quartet CHILDCARE invite you on a wellness adventure with their debut album ‘Wabi-Sabi’, released 31st May via Get Well Soon. The album is just one part of CHILDCARE’s Get Well Soon project; a multi-faceted wellness mission to make us all that little bit better through Personal Glory™ retreats, agony activist discussions and ‘woah-man’ workshops.
CHILDCARE were formed by Ed Cares, formerly one of West London’s most in-demand male nannies. Ed enlisted local musicians Emma Topolski (bass/vocals), Rich Le Gate (guitar) and David Dyson (drums) to complete the group and they performed their first shows together at Reading and Leeds festival in 2016. Their skewed, off-center, softcore psych has gained them eager fans across the continent, extensive BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music support including 28 Radio 1 spins for latest single, the Radio 1 Introducing Track of the Week ‘Sugarcane’ and wide-spread online coverage from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, Wonderland, Clash, DIY and Indie shuffle.
Wabi-Sabi takes the listener on a self-healing quest of discovery; from dosings of Dr Dre in the album’s first song ‘Omega Grey’ and cross-dressing experimentation in ‘Getting Over You (Wabi-Sabi Cut)’ to psychedelic freak-out ‘Magazines’, this is what healing guitar music should sound like; fresh, escapist and with just a hint of the transcendental.
