Lostchild returns with a bumper EP, “Imperfect”
Lostchild – the pop name of Joe Copplestone – is back for 2020 with his brand new EP, “Imperfect”. The follow up to 2019’s “Like Like“, the bumper EP is loaded with five new songs and two mixes of the title and lead track. The EP kicks off with the superb 80’s-esque title song, with awesome drum programming. The song swims and bathes in Summer ecstasy but has deeply personal lyrics and a story to be told underneath. “Jokes” beings very innocently and creates more Summer vibes until…
…the song’s chorus explodes into a retro-rock euphoria. “Jokes” sees Lostchild team up with US artist Mickey Taylor, whose recent album, “Surrender”, broke the UK album chart. “Barely Alive” takes the pace down to a slow and sensual beat as Lostchild considers how suffocated he feels “at 25 and barely alive”. More gorgeous retro guitars lace this sublime song giving it a cool Summer feel. “Soothe 20” follows suit and showcases Lostchild’s maturity and dexterity as a songwriter and a performer. “Love Finds A Way” is the fifth and last new song but from the very first few seconds as it builds up you can tell this is going to be a joyous deity from beginning to end.
Back to the pop-dance beats of the title track, “Love Finds A Way” could so easily be the standout track of this EP (well for this reviewer it is!) If you really want something to break and shake to this year, “Love Finds A Way” will deliver this and more so in bucket loads. Outstanding! The EP closes with an acoustic version of “Imperfect” and a mix from UK producer Ghalali, all of which combine to produce one amazing collection of new music and quite possibly Lostchild’s best music to date. Let it be heard loud and proud, this album deserves to reach a wide audience and really put Lostchild on the pop map for all time.
