British band CHILDCARE release visual for comical song ‘Sugarcane’: Watch

Growing up with my African family and Caribbean people around me in New York City, my thoughts about sugarcane are synonymous with traveling, warm weather, community, and contentment. So whether it was true or not before I pressed play, that’s what I hoped to hear when experiencing CHILDCARE’s song of the same name. Visually fun, lyrically comedic, and uptempo, the British musical group’s ode to the perennial tropical grass is everything I thought it was: A sweet acquired taste. What does the band think? The record is about “exploring a [more] delicious, greasier version of yourself.”
