William Control - "The Pale"
Written by: Lexie
Need a quick pick-me-up? How about giving William Control's new EP (just released 10/14!) "The Pale" a listen?😉
Though "The Pale" only has four songs, it is guaranteed to lift your mood in that short time-span! The EP's tracks are all upbeat and have a heavy dance-groove. While William Control's signature darkwave sound has always had an upbeat quality in its sound, but this EP seems more spirited, which is evident in the lifted vocals. The vocals still undeniably have their haunting edge, but they add a relatively less dark tone to the music, in comparison to Control's earlier music.
All four tracks on this EP have a similar sound to each other, which creates a seamless flow throughout, but also comes off as slightly redundant -- more variety definitely would've added to the EP's appeal. Each intro will draw you in with promise of a separate direction, but by the chorus, they stray back to the shared sound of the EP. While the sound is pleasant, I just would've preferred more variety.
Overall, I would rate this EP a 7 out of 10. "The Pale" is sure to get you moving along to the irresistible beat and lighten your mood, so be sure to check it out for yourself! Let us know what YOU think, and if you like what you hear, remember that you can purchase it for yourself TODAY!
