Lostchild Like Like

FRESH: ‘Like Like’ EP – Lostchild

Lostchild is back with “Like Like”!

“Like Like” is about watching everyone around you figure out their lives and loves out, whilst you can’t seem to put the pieces together. My fear of rejection and failure has definitely kept me from leaving the self destructive behaviours of my past behind, and this song stems from that feeling of powerlessness. “Like Like” is the brand new EP from Lostchild, a solo lgbt artist and performer who writes and produces pop music that is very personal. Growing up in a small town in the UK, Joe Copplestone aka Lostchild always felt like an outsider, not able to connect with anyone.

The EP is his third EP, following on from his debut “Being Loved When You Know You’re Not Good Enough” in 2017 and “Blacklist” in 2018. The new EP features three brand new recordings plus a remix and acoustic version of the title track. Joe tells us: “In the video I’m carrying balloons through a colourful pink space, which very much represents my safe little bubble away from the world. I never let go of the balloons, and at the end instead of releasing the balloons off the roof when I’ve got the chance, I take one look at the horizon and head right back inside. It’s a simple childlike video that takes place in my head, a place where I can dance and have fun…but I’m the only one ever there”.

Written by Christopher Smith

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
