The Satellite and the Sea - Control-Control

Posted by Shichi , 10 August 2011 · 379 views

A slight quirkiness sets Control-Control apart from their roots-rock brethen. The quirkiness can be seen starting from their album cover, which features a man flying a satellite kite. Their touch of eccentricity is a breath of fresh air in a genre filled with over-earnest bands. Satellite and the Sea is the Fremantle trio's debut EP.

Firstly, their sound is impressively big for an acoustic three-piece, with Grant Christensen's acoustic guitar the backbone of their sound. From the first track, The Enterprise, the band does not let up their energy and the bond between the members is palpable. They also touch on the epic at times with It Won't Take You and Sexy Sea (the highlight of the EP), and throughout the EP, they are able to write well-crafted songs with intelligent lyrics.

If you are a fan of roots-rock, it would be a good idea to pick this EP up. An impressive debut release.
