Control 02:56


Reptile Room's ‘Control,’ from their upcoming Om Records debut LP Jade, is pure high-octane adrenalin with deep bass booming over a steady break and Sami’s voice soaring over top. “Control is a rebellion,” the band explains, “People will try and take from you, try to manipulate you for their gain and give you every reason why you can’t do something. Tell us we can’t do something and we’re going to do it.” Strong words from a band that New Noise calls “honed in on full expression. Their organic flow is brought out in their thoughtful dynamics, their spiraling sound, and their atmospheric presence.”

The theme is captured visually in the upcoming video with the contrast between the white room and all of the colors that appear. Sami explains, “The white room symbolizes being stifled creatively by others and the color represents breaking out of that constriction and freeing your expression. A lot of people try to put you in a box, and control is about fighting back and breaking free.”
