Still's "Control" is a haunting romantic rumination

Still's debut single, "Divinity," seemingly came out of nowhere—the trio delved into the melodic side of post-punk with its ringing, layered guitars and robust rhythm section.  Their latest single, "Control," also adopts a trebly, shimmering sound that comes across like the work of a full band rather than an intimate bedroom recording—an anomaly for a contemporary band that adopts an eighties guitar-pop style. There's an-all-embracing romanticism to lead singer Daniel McDonough's passionate admission: "Embers rising from a fire / You burned it all down so your past selves would die," he sings in a tender falsetto, showcasing his commanding range over a beautifully arranged balance of delicate synth lines and just the right amount of reverb—very much in the tradition of songwriters like Gerard "Caesar" McInulty and Mark Burgess. - Juan Rodríguez
