"Big Man" sees CHILDCARE load up on snarling cynicism, articulating their thoughts through menacing interweaving melodies whilst ultimately encouraging more active and inclusive conversation when it comes to the current political climate.
"Big Man" creeps in with a menacing guitar riff that echoes frontman Ed Cares snarling vocals as he boldly illustrates his frustrations and is perfectly backed by chilling backing harmonies. It sets the tone for the remainder of the song that pounds onwards against a backdrop of squalling guitars.
Despite the apparent frustration that permeates through the track, there is an important message that the CHILDCARE perfectly articulate. They show how it is important to listen to those that hold different views from our own as the middle eight chimes in with a positive encouragement of being more patient, saying "He knows how to push me / Knows we'll disagree / But we talk because we are from the same family".
Cares has gone on to explain this message in more detail, saying "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. 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 track is taken from the band's upcoming EP entitled Luckyucker which is due out later this year.
