Like so many musicians, performers and singers, during these times of lock-down and self-isolation, singer-producer Lostchild has rustled up, a new offering, for us to listen, too. He’s opted to delve in on The 1975 track “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME” from the band’s recent album “A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.” Giving the dreamy, and evocative Lostchild treatment to the most buoyant electro-pop track from Matty Healy’s band’s third studio album.
So Lostchild has made “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME” even more 80s. And EQ readers should absolutely, be here for it. Because, this, reimagining is uplifting, spellbinding and soothing. A sound and style experience dished out exactly in that order. If like me, you might feel ordinarily precious about different cover versions of The 1975’s songs. Let me just say this, “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME” is in safe hands with Lostchild. Joe has served justice upon the flirty pop track, about unfaithful relationships in the digital age.
In light of so many, festivals and tours being either postponed or cancelled in recent days. You may have also noticed a growing number of music artists have taken to the internet to keep us entertained with live-streams and online shows etc. Happy to share, Lostchild is joining in along the ranks of Dan Smith from Bastille, Years & Years (Olly Alexander,) Calvin Harris (Love Generator,) Lauv, Greyson Chance, Christine and the Queens, Madeon, Bright Light Bright Light, Sarah Close and L Devine.
Lostchild will be performing a different half-hour set each night from Wednesday (YAY today!) until Saturday this week, live from his living room.
