SONG OF THE WEEK: CHILDCARE – ‘Getting Over You (By Dressing Up Like You)’

CHILDCARE’s latest ‘Getting Over You (By Dressing Up Like You)’ incorporates Motown swing with sharp ’00s indie pop (recalling the likes of The Wombats). A gentle start to this heartbreak healer surprises, before launching into thrashing guitar and polyphonic delight.

It’s an unexpectedly mischievous and lyrically bizarre concept for a song, written out of personal experience according to writer/frontman Ed Cares: “After being the victim of a polite yet painful breakup, I found myself later that same day wearing one of the skirts of my former inamorata for a video shoot the band was filming. Realising this was an A* creative writing idea for a song, I quickly noted down the title ‘Getting Over You (By Dressing Up Like You)’ in my gmail drafts folder and the song flowered from there.” 

The song flows effortlessly, with a great chorus that stays in the mind for hours on end, overall a well constructed pop song.

CHILDCARE’s new single ‘Getting Over You (By Dressing Up Like You)’ is out now via Elephant Records.
