Tinkering with her magic desk, our resident pop/R&B songstress (and favorite crafty Virgo) TALA capped off the week with new single “Control.” Are we adding this to our next Spotify Group Session? Absolutely.
Her first release this 2020, “Control” is a bouncy anthem of our late night feelings—stripped down, fragile and naturally dreamy. Layered with warm but groovy instrumentals, we find ourselves in the same boat as she sings, “Always tryna look my best around you / but look like I don’t give a fuck.”
Both a potential radio gem and dancey track, “Control” makes us more excited for TALA’s next offering. With her crooning vocals, she can take us anywhere.
