The pedigree and musicianship of L.A.B. is undeniable.
L.A.B. was founded by the legendary Kora brothers Brad (drums) and Stu (guitar, keys) and quickly engaged the extraordinary talent of Joel Shadbolt on lead vocals & guitar and Ara Adams-Tamatea from the mighty Katchafire on bass.
'Controller' is one of the first songs L.A.B. wrote together. "[It's] a great tune to play live," says vocalist Joel Shadbolt, "One that we all love to jam as a band. It’s about another beautiful girl who falls in love with an asshole. She’s blinded by his looks and fame, but he’s a control freak."
