Uncanny beauty illuminates through SBK01’s single ‘Control’. It is a darkened electric dream, of and for fears – not yet existing – but always present.
SBK01’s new single opens with an expansive, retro drum kit and an off-kilter melody that sets her vocals against dark twisting 90’s-esque synth pads. The lyrics confront us with the cold, uncomfortable truths of living from a place of fear until a hopeful horizon emerges as layered synthesizers break through, surrounded by choral, cleverly layered harmonies and a middle-eight that reminds us of the beauty of consciousness.
“The song was inspired by the idea of fear and its power,” said SBK01. “How it can grip you, twist ideas to make bad decisions and create illogical reactive action. Through repetition, the song represents our minds going over over the same ideas, moving to break free from errors and the fear of control.”
The heft of gravity, soiled in prominent exultancy – SBK01’s beautiful vocals, drape you from end-to-end. And with that, you converge on a new reality, of love, of fire, in desire, and in confession.
