Aaron Taos has us thinking about society and bobbing along to his latest tune, “Control.” We dig the double-tracked, saturated, and smooth vocals with their laid back groove. The melody almost has a Joey Ramone thing going on…dig it. Inspired by the monotony of suburban life, “Control” is filled with catchy licks and arrangement tricks. Synths, guitars, and crispy drums make for good listening, and the video keeps you locked (big shout to the Coney Island parachute jump and Cyclone). “Control” is the first single off Taos’ latest project, Birthday Boy — so look forward to more releases in the near future. Will we see a return of our blue friend in a follow-up video? Stay tuned to Aaron Taos.
