Former Child Stars are five lovable rogues from Sydney who boast an unorthodox blend of high-energy crowd movers and melodic understatements. They like to slap you and serenade you at the same time.

Biography

Former Child Stars – contrary to the name – is not a band comprised of Macaulay Culkin, Corey Haim and that fat kid from 'Hey Dad'. Far from it. Rather, FCS is made up of five lovable rogues originally from Adelaide, now living in Sydney, who play some bitchin' indie pop.

With a fistful of killer shows and supports in their sky-rocket including national tours with Madness (UK) and Faker, Big Day Out, Come Together Festival, The Panics, Van She, Cut Off Your Hands, and the list goes on… FCS are readying themselves for a massive year ahead of touring the nation and playing shows in their adopted home of Sydney.

The band's second EP 'Serotonin City' was produced by Scott Horscroft (Silverchair, The Presets, The Panics) at Sydney's BJB studios is a bold statement of intent - it's catchy, edgy, full of energy and meant to played loud on a Friday night. Much like the band themselves.

Former Child Stars' glitzy new single was self produced and recorded at HotHouse Studio, St Kilda. It's a true progression of sound for the band, harnessing a more lush and expansive soundscape while still maintaining the driving, danceable beat and infectious hooks that the band is known and loved for.

Lyrics

Control

Written By: O'Loughlin

Here we go I've lost control again,
I lost my mind but I've found yours,
Leave everything I know behind again,
Cause' trusting you just feels to nice

And I may wait all night in the pouring rain,
And you may never let me see your pretty face again,
But I'll be there, yeah I'll be there

Here we go I've lost Control again
Here we go I've lost Control again

The sky looks like it's set on fire tonight,
I can't see beyond your eyes,
See one eclipse and you have seen them all,
But I ain't seen this one before

And I may sell away my soul, you may buy it cheap,
And you may keep it in a box with all of your receipts
But I'll be there, yeah I'll be there,

Here we go I've lost Control again
Here we go I've lost Control again
Here we go I've lost Control again
Here we go, it's all I know

I'll sell my soul, I'll sell my soul honey
Cause it won't feel the same again

I'll sell my soul, I'll sell my soul honey
Cause it won't feel the same again

I'll sell my soul, I'll sell my soul honey
Cause it won't feel the same again

Here we go I've lost Control again
Here we go I've lost Control again
Here we go I've lost Control again
Here we go, it's all I know
